Lenovo's motives for the acquisition of Motorola explained in a graph
As you might know, Lenovo, a Chinese electronics manufacturer, bought Motorola from Google for $2.91 billion several weeks ago. Yet another reason for this acquisition was disclosed by Lenove itself. Thanks to a recently-disclosed graph, the Chinese company statess that the sales of its smartphones and tablets overtook the sales of PCs and laptops. The acquisition of Motorola is intended to improve these sales even more and "quickly place this business on a path to tangible success".

According to Lenovo's graph, the Chinese manufacturer has sold 17.3 million smartphones and tablets in 2013, a 47% growth in comparison with 2012. On the other hand, the same period of time accounts for the sales of 15.3 million PCs. It looks like Lenovo's mobile devices got ahead in the beginning of 2013 and were on the top throughout the whole year.


It seems that the Chinese company is determined to become a bigger player in the global smartphone market. Only time will show if the Motorola acquisition will help Lenovo in achieving its goal.

This sounds great maybe you can start producing higher end moto devices because google didnt do anything with them. We needed this lenovo backbone with motos great reception. Would be nice to see a high end intel device or nvidia as well.
