Proper on the finish of 2017, and previous to CES 2018, LG introduced a brand new Google Assistant speaker as a part of its ThinQ sensible lineup. Then, at CES, the corporate adopted up by means of including the ThinQ View (pictured above), its personal tackle Google‘s Good Shows with Assistant built-in. On the time, the pricing and availability of those wasn’t transparent. Now, we all know just a bit bit extra.
LG ThinQ Speaker with Assistant (WK7)
B&H has posted its pre-order pages for each the LG ThinQ Speaker (WK7) and the ThinQ View Good Show (WK9). Consistent with the listings, the 2 are “coming quickly,” and the costs are $197 for the WK7 and $297 for the WK9. Yikes. This is steep. Relatively, JBL’s Assistant audio system hover between $100 (Hyperlink 10) and $150 (Hyperlink 20), and the eight” Lenovo Good Show (similar measurement because the WK9) is alleged to be $199. The 10″ Lenovo shall be $249, which remains to be not up to the WK9.
I do not know about you, however the design of the WK9 used to be already very unfashionable and unappealing to start with. The $300 ticket simply kills it for me.
