One of the most difficult things in the sector of consumer electronics is to create new types of product. When it goes well all the industry’s climb on the bandwagon, but start from zero is not straightforward.
This is what you are trying to Microsoft with new Microsoft Teams-Up Displaysdevices similar in shape to the speaker, intelligent with a screen, but that use Android as their operating system and are designed to work.
So are the Microsoft Teams Displays
These gadgets come to be to the phones the same as smartphones have been the mobile phones of the past century.
The idea of the company from Redmond is that the workers have a device with a touch screen where you use the Microsoft Teams, being able to chat, make calls, look at the calendar, etc
The Team Displays work as second monitors of the laptops, something that we know works Lenovo by what we have seen in a leak.
The Lenovo ThinkSmart View is the first Teams Display
The first company to create this kind of device is Lenovo, which has announced its Lenovo ThinkSmart View for $ 349.
It is a device with 8-inch screen and resolution 1280 x 800 px that uses Android 8.1 version AOSP. Has two speakers, the processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 624 and use Cortana as a voice assistant. In addition, at the end of the year the company Yealink will launch another device of this type.
Submit something like six months is risky and while it is clear that this will not be a type of home product, will have to see if Microsoft is able to convince many companies that the future lies in this type of devices, that do not seem to be more than laptops something cut.
The price is rather high, especially taking into account the cost that have Android phones of similar benefits or speakers smart as the Lenovo.
