Lenovo Sets Web-Linked TV
Chinese personal-computer maker Lenovo Group Ltd. on Tuesday said it would soon unveil a "smart TV" product called LeTV as well as a new cloud-computing strategy, as it competes with others to diversify and address growing demand for Internet-connected devices. The company, which surpassed Dell Inc. in the third quarter to become the world's second-largest PC vendor by unit shipments after Hewlett-Packard Co., is the latest to enter the competition to offer Internet content on television. Lenovo didn't provide details on the capabilities of LeTV, but it comes as others have released smart TVs, which are expected to have computer-style features and could allow companies to directly sell movies, TV shows and other content. Search giant Google Inc. is gearing up to challenge the likes of Apple Inc. in the area with its Google TV operating system. Lenovo said the new LeTV will be an Internet-connected product and is expected to launch in the first quarter. In recent weeks, Samsung Electronics Co. and LG Electronics Inc. have also announced plans for smart TVs.
