Lenovo ships 76 million smartphones for the year, remains the third largest global manufacturer
Motorola products are being slowly added to Lenovo's offerings in China, and the division is expected to turn profitable sometime in the next four to six quarters. Lenovo itself is in the midst of expanding its smartphone sales globally. China did account for a majority of smartphone shipments for the fiscal year with 45 million units, or 59% of Lenovo's handsets in transit, landing in the country. But the 31 million smartphones shipped outside China resulted in a massive 450% gain year-over-year. Overall, Lenovo shipped 76 million smartphones for the fiscal year allowing it to remain the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world.
In the tablet sector, Lenovo shipped 12 million units for the year, a 26% gain over the last fiscal year's figure. Lenovo says that it owns 5.1% of the global tablet market.
