This smart speaker from Lenovo has a detachable screen and Amazon Alexa | CES 2019
Among the novelties presented by Lenovo here at CES in Las Vegas we find Lenovo Smart Tab with Amazon Alexa: a hybrid device that is a bit tablet and a bit smart speaker. Here’s how this curious but useful s worksmart speaker with detachable screen.
Lenovo Smart Tab: first smart speaker and then detachable tablet
Lenovo Smart Tab is a device consisting of two parts: a smart speaker with Amazon Alexa assistant accompanied by a 10-inch Lenovo tablet (which will be launched on the market in two different versions).
The display / tablet rests on top of the smart speaker with an interlocking and magnetic system called the LenovoSmart Dock. This is a new category of 2-in-1 tablets that turn into smart screens with Amazon Alexa.
Alexa’s commands will only work if the smart speaker and tablet are connected, otherwise it will not be able to give you any kind of information. The indications reproduced will be audio but also visual. We tried to ask Lenovo Smart Tab “what’s the weather like in Las Vegas” and we were informed of the memeteorological conditions both from the voice of Amazon Alexa and from the information appeared on the display.
If necessary, however, you will be free to decide to detach the display from the base to use it as a real tablet equipped with the stock version of the Android Oreo operating system.
This smart speaker with detachable screen can obviously control your smart home devices as any other smart speaker would, but it does it with an extra gear: visual information that never hurts.
In short, this Lenovo Smart Tab created in collaboration with Amazon Alexa opens the doors to new hybrid and multifunctional devices that will enrich your home.
