ThinkVision 28 is a 4K Display With Android and Tegra Inside

Lenovo's ThinkVision Pro2840m wasn't the only 4K display the company announced today. This afternoon at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Lenovo introduced us to the ThinkVision 28 4K.

 

This monitor packs the same 3840 x 2160 resolution as the ThinkVision Pro2840m, but Lenovo is describing it as a smart display. The monitor packs Nvidia's Tegra and an Android interface that allows for streaming of on demand content at the touch of a button. There's also 10-point multi-touch, another feature not present in the ThinkVision Pro2840m.

The ThinkVision 28 boasts a 5 ms response time, 32 GB of eMMC storage along with 2 GB of DDR3L, NFC, MicroSD support, 3x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0, 1x MicroUSB 3.0, 3x HDMI, Audio Out, Audio In, RJ45 Ethernet, and 1x DisplayPort. There are also two 5W speakers and a 2-megapixel camera.

Of course, given the packed spec list, the ThinkVision 28 is quite a bit more expensive than the $800 Pro2840m. When this monitor hits in July, it will carry a price tag of $1199.

    It's actually not that much more than the other, especially if you really want these features

    Unless you are a foot or two away from it, like say using the touchscreen you should be able to notice. Its all about viewing distances. 4K on a 55" TV is even stupid if its too far away from you to benefit, but get close enough, and have the right content you will see it.

    I can notice the PPI difference on my Yoga 2 and buddy's retina, and those are resolutions less than 4K...

    You can have 4K on large TV with standard density or smaller device and have higher PPI, either one is noticeable.

    to bad most APPs wont even run at native 4k, most likely just stupid upscaling, oh well Apps are crappy anyways. dont need to play Angry birds in 4k tyvm.

    This will likely be a sweet screen to free up space on the physical desk for those two 27s I use today, each 1080 which means 127cm width covered. Developing it that is good but can lead to some headturning and having it all covered twice even in just one 28 inch screen would be a very nice "touch".

    And touch will just add to productivity the same way it did on my laptop, this screen is bloody perfect except the tall pricetag. Just hope it will be decent build quality.

    If I can't hardly tell the difference between a 720p 32 inch tv and a 1080p 32 inch tv...how will this be any different?

    This is a monitor not a TV Jgriff. Trying to be productvie on a 720p monitor is near impossible. Not enough space or resolution to multitask properly. The difference between 720p and 1080 is a lot more different when you're using the device as a monitor. Same will stand when we go from 1080p to 4k. Nearly twice the space. Able to have more programs, etc. 3d Modeling on a 4K monitor would be great. Each quadrant is full size. Even at 1080 it doesn't feel that I have enough space.
