Lenovo Will Focus On Tablets, Smartphones, TVs With New Mobile Division


It’s not that Lenovo hasn’t worked on Tablets, Smartphones, or TVs in the past, but they’re finally realizing that these areas of focus need their complete attention as their arguably the biggest areas of growth. Likewise, failure to compete at the current pivotal point in the tech world could mean giving up a lead that’s too difficult a deficit to overcome. Thankfully, Lenovo is ready to fully invest themselves in the mobile game and have officially announced the formation of a new business group called the Mobile Internet and Digital Home Business Group.

I’ve personally purchased a Lenovo Ideapad laptop and loved it so I was incredibly eager to check out the Lenovo Lephone they announced last year. Unfortunately that never made it into the United States and their Android offerings seemed limited at best. Fast forward to CES 2011 and they made a splash with Lenovo Android products like the Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid running both Android and Windows.

Hopefully the company will continue this push into not only Android but all things mobile- I really like the company’s innovation and ability to deliver sturdy and reliable products. It sounds like they’re fully committed, I mean creating a new business group isn’t exactly lip service:

“Lenovo recognizes the tremendous growth potential of the mobile internet, as well as that of new categories like cloud computing and smart TV, and so we are putting the focus and investments in place to fully capitalize on these opportunities to drive growth in our business today and for many years to come,” said Yang Yuanqing, chief executive officer, Lenovo. “The Mobile Internet and Digital Home Business Group will help us leverage our leadership in the PC arena to create a rich portfolio of Internet-centric devices. At the same time, we’ll use our creativity, innovation and technical prowess to help our customers navigate the future of personal technology worldwide.”

  1. Yes, looking forward for Lenovo to release more mobile products. I am huge fan of thinkpad.

  2. That hybrid laptop/tablet is effin’ sweet. If they’d bump up the specs on the tablet I’d be having a serious discussion w/ my credit card about it.

  3. ThinkPads are built like vaults. I’ve had several ThinkPads for work for several years, they can take the abuse. I like the rubberized black outer shell.

  4. Lenovo will have to work hard, right now its easily associated with overpriced business computers. Probably set the SD reader up so you could only use Lenovo branded sd cards or have to use the Lenovo usb charger. *Cough*IBM*Cough*

  5. I’m a Thinkpad fan too
