If you’ve been waiting to see what the JBL Link View Smart Display will cost when it launches in Australia later this month – we have it – it’s in the title ;).
The JBL Link View is now showing up on the Harvey Norman website with a $349 price tag, and though you can order one they’re listed as ‘Out of Stock’ at all stores with a lead time of 6-14 days, which fits with JBL’s previous announcement that it would arrive in Australia at the end of October.
In terms of pricing, the JBL Smart Display is coming in at $50 more than the 8″ Lenovo Smart Display which is priced at $299.
Like the Lenovo model, the JBL Smart Display includes an 8″ HD resolution screen, though has the additional benefit of twin front-facing speakers which should in theory offer a better sound. The JBL Smart Display also lists an IPX4 rating making it splash proof, which sets it ahead of the Lenovo model which has no such rating.
If you’re after a bit of a comparison, the B&H Photo Video site has a decent rundown, though many of the JBL Link View Specs are missing.
JBL Australia hasn’t yet added the Link View to their website as yet, so if you want any further information you can check out the US site for a more complete rundown.
In terms of availability we should see the JBL Link View also head to JB Hifi as well as Harvey Norman, as well as go on-sale through the JBL website later this month. We’ve reached out to JBL Australia for more details and we’ll update when they have something to announce.
