“I’ll be very clear: Our aspiration is someday to be No. 1 in the mobile space,” said J.D. Howard, a Lenovo vice president, told the publication.
Eric Pfanner writes Lenovo is best known for personal computers and that deals, including its acquisition of IBM’s PC business in 2005, helped expand the Chinese firm’s presence in major markets.
According to market research firms Gartner and IDC, Lenovo garnered a 16.7 percent share of PC shipments worldwide.
In 2012, Lenovo debuted the Yoga device designed to combine laptop and tablet features and run on Android operating system, Pfanner writes.
“The PC is not going to go away tomorrow,” Peter Hortensius, president of Lenovo’s Think Business Group told The Times, adding that “$200 billion is a big pie, and we think we can get a bigger piece of it.”
