Lenovo Smart TV rumored

Smart TVs aka Internet connected TVs are on the rise since a while. The current Smart TV generation from Samsung, LG, Sony and others are already quite mature and easy to use. For a background on Smart TVs read this report. As Smart TVs become more like computers, the PC industry takes notice.

Digitimes reports that Lenovo is supposedly preparing a Smart TV line that they would sell through their PC retail channel. I assume Lenovo will focus on small screen type TVs and not compete with the established TV companies on the mid-size to large TV segments.

The first Lenovo Smart TVs could arrive in the 2nd half of 2011.

My main problem so far with Smart TVs is how quickly they get outdated. Today's Smart TV platforms at least support apps and firmware upgrades. The first connected TVs got outdated really fast as development of Smart TV features like VOD, web browsing and social communication moved ahead. Today you can rent a movie on Netflix, surf the web make a Skype call, install apps and more on your Smart TV. The early connected TVs only let you surf to a small set of sites and offered some predefined info channels. Today's Smart TV platforms are much more robust, but I do not think development will slow down.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
