Lenovo now sells phones in 26 countries, will showcase mobile devices at MWC 2014
Lenovo is the world’s fourth largest smartphone vendor (as of last year). That’s really impressive, considering the fact that, 18 months ago, the company was selling handsets only in its home country, China.
Today, Lenovo announced that it's now offering phones in 26 markets around the world. With the acquisition of Motorola Mobility from Google (which should be completed soon), the Chinese company will also gain access to the North American market. So there’s certainly room for growth.
Of course, Lenovo is mainly known for being the world’s largest PC vendor. But its rapid growth in the smartphone and tablet space can't be overlooked.
Like Samsung, LG, Sony, Nokia, Huawei and others, Lenovo will have a booth at MWC 2014. According to the company, its presence at MWC this year will be “its largest ever.” It will showcase its “full line-up of mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets and multimode PCs”, while also having “a theatre area in the stand for live product demos, audience interaction and entertaining.”
It’s not clear if we’re going to see any brand new Lenovo smartphones and tablets at MWC, but we’ll find out next week.
