ThinkSmart View - beginning of the end?

2021-10-21, 14:50 PM

When you can find a device from a major reseller for ~1/4 the original cost, that's a good indication of a vendor about to EOS.

 

Today, (Oct 21, 2021), Best Buy has the Lenovo ThinkSmart View for $99.

Price is back up, but I almost think that if the ThinkSmart View was in the $100 price range, it would be more affable to people.  After spending a year+ working with Microsoft in trying to improve the firmware, not sure when it makes sense to retire the product, I do think with the latest firmware it's gotten slower.

At Ignite they announced "new" functionality that will be enabled for the ThinkSmart View, and Yealink will come out with their own version next year (a much bigger screen, not the unit we saw before when the ThinkSmart View was announced), so there's still some more life to these devices.

Yes, I saw that as well.  Hopefully it includes working with enhanced device management.  I have to use mine (and my Yealink VC210) on my personal tenant, as the enhanced device management used by my company breaks the sign-in process.
