Yes you have made a very valid assumption, but it is not expected from Casio in near future, infect Casio was very much involved in an earlier era before the invention of Smartphone in design and development PDAs but they never came back again with a phone functionality associated with it, that can make them Smartphone manufacturer.

Well, Casio is still making lots of high tech watches... Perhaps they'll turn a watch that's a cell phone!

Japanese stack is essential in electronic product design segment, the presence of the Japanese players have shown the quality and durability of the electronics products. NEC is doing good in the display market. Sooner or Later displays will also be driven by android. Google is providing a versatile operating system. So it is a big question why NEC has walked out of the Android based products segment. As NEC is out of the Android based products now only Sony is a major Japanese player in this segment.

I added my opinion, Mr mcgrathdylan 

Do you really think that Lenovo requires a partner to make headway in the U.S. smartphone market? Lenovo already has brand recognition in the U.S. (I am typing this comment on a Lenovo laptop right now). Can't Lenovo go it alone?

In my opinion, Lenovo cannot do it solo in the Smartphone market. So, if not NEC then it has to find another partner to enter into the smartphone business and not just the partner biut one with a strong brand value like IBM Thinkpad was in Laptops when Lenovo took that business from IBM

I think you were right the first time, Junko. While Lenovo could go it alone, or with a China-based partner, it would gain immediate global recognition behind a major brand.  What it did with the ThinkPad was to acquire the brand and use that to promote its own version.  Maybe it could do THAT again...buy a major phone brand and create phones under that.  Other Chinese companies have done that, too.  Want a Maytag? It's a Chinese brand.

Now...could it buy RIM and go in a new direction with the brand...I think so.

The shipment of Lenovo laptop proves the brand is well recognized in a positive way. I certainly believe they can go alone to the world market. My concern is whether consumers will seem them as a laptop choice more than an alternative of tablet/ smartphone. There is no doubt a great marketing team is necessary.

Maybe I am wrong about that...but you know, when Lenovo broke into the PC market in the United States, we all knew its background --- IBM heritage.

So, my question is how well consumers know Lenovo, and whether they regard it as the go-to brand for their next smartphones...

I see your point, Junko.  I suppose Nokia would be a logical partner -- it has global brand recognition and, let's face it, the Windows thing isn't setting the world on fire.
