After waiting for a long duration, the first Google Smart Display is at last available. The company announced a swerve of the devices back in January at CES — no doubt as a way of sticking it to Amazon. After all, the Echo Show was a novel enough device in the smart speaker world, but the hardware was always a little lacking.
Google, on the other hand, let hardware partners do the dirty work here, and at CES, the company announced devices from Lenovo, JBL and LG. The former was far and away the nicest-looking of the bunch — and it’s the first to hit the market, running $200 for the eight-inch version and $250 for the 10-inch. The others are simply listed as “coming soon.”
Google took things a one step ahead at I/O, handing out hardware development kits, so interested producers could build their own. Expect those to start flooding the market in the not-so-distant future, if the Assistant smart speaker market is any indicator.
