Lenovo says the Smart Displays will have a lead time of 10-15 days for shipping from the Lenovo website, while JB Hifi is offering both 8″ model and 10.1″ model same price though with a pre-order bonus of a Google Home Mini if pre-ordered before the 19th of October.
Smart Displays are powered by the Android Things platform which was launched from Beta just prior to Google I/O this year. Google has been updating Google Assistant with more visual aspects including the ability to watch YouTube videos and Cooking demos, as well as checking the weather forecast, and checking your Google Photos feed and lots more.
