LeEco might still not be a name that is familiar to mainstream consumers in certain regions like the US. However, it is likely to be one which has become more familiar to consumers recently. While being an extremely big company in the regions it does operate within, LeEco has been making some fairly significant moves to make its presence more widely felt in areas like the US. Following its rebranding from Letv to LeEco, the company fairly recently acquired the US TV brand, Vizio.
Those who are already familiar with LeEco will also know that the company has many strings to its bow and has brought to market some notable and interesting products. One of which was is its smart cycle. As the name suggests, while this is a bicycle, it is also one which makes use of ‘smart’ features to offer a more technologically enhanced riding experience. To be specific, it makes use of a 4-inch display which is powered by the Android operating system, as well as smart features including a smart riding system, laser lane markers, fingerprint identification, and more. If this is something that you had been hoping to pick up in the US soon, it seems you will be able to via AT&T.
While AT&T might not be the first store you consider picking up a bike from, as this is a smart bike it is one which looks to make use of a data plan to cater to its smart needs. This is where AT&T will come in as they have announced today that they will be the exclusive US wireless carrier for LeEco's ‘Super Bike’. Unfortunately, the announcement which does confirm AT&T’s commitment to the LeEco Super Bike does not provide any specific details on when the bicycle will become available to buy in the US or even if you can specifically pick one up at AT&T stores of if you will need to just ride into the store and activate the plan. Instead, the announcement came as part of a wider AT&T announcement which looked to further define AT&T's commitment to the Internet of Things (IoT) in general.
