Lenovo outs 55-inch TV with Android Ice Cream Sandwich

It turns out Apple isn't the only computer manuacturer hell-bent on encroaching on the TV world in 2012. Lenovo reveals its first ever TV set and it's the first to come loaded with Ice Cream Sandwich

Chinese computing giant Lenovo has just announced its entry into the TV market with the added bonus of offering the first set to come with Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

The 55-inch Lenovo K91 Smart TV set, which for the time being will be a China-only launch, doesn't appear to be affiliated with Google TV in any way and will run Android 4.0 along with a secondary "Sandwich UI" which will play host to connected TV apps and services.

The 1080p television has an IPS display and comes packed with a 1.5GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM and a 5-megapixel camera build into the bezel to enable video calling.

The Android 4.0 television, according to Lenovo's official release, will also be controllable through speech and come with a motion-sensing, touchpad-equipped remote control and will also be compatible with Lenovo tablets and smartphones.

Also announced ahead of Monday's CES press day are the Lenovo IdeaPad S2 tablet, which will also run on Android 4.0. The device comes with a 10.1-inch screen and is slightly lighter than the iPad 2. It'll come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB varieties.

The IdeaPad S2 also arrives with a laptop dock, giving it a similar appearance to the excellent Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime.

Completing the announcements is the S2 smartphone which misses out on Ice Cream Sandwich and has to settle for Android 2.3. There's a 3.8-inch, 800x480 display, an 8-megapixel camera and a 1.4GHz single core processor. Looks like it could be a decent mid-range option.

We'll be endeavoring to get our hands on all of this new Lenovo tech when the showrooms open here in Las Vegas, Nevada at the biggest show of the year.
