I rarely heard bad thing about Lenovo laptop in the States and the brand is popular in Asia for quality reason. I was surprise to hear all the complaints it in various comments. Nonetheless, there are always good and bad of a brand. i am sure there are good models and bad models.
Lenovo laptop has been competitive in price. Will the new Lenovo smartphone put pressure to smartphone market? What are the "innovative" features Lenovo going to put to the very first Motorola Powerd by Lenovo smartphone?
I liked Lenovo laptop a lot. It is really sturdy and robust, and I didn't experience any battery issues. I have a couple at home, and one of them dropped to floor/downstairs a few times, but it is still running strong...
@Anand.Yaligar You are right that's what is the expectation from Lenovo by the Moto Lovers, but still if you are mentioning 100 Million Units sales will be roughly 8 times their last year sales. Last year Lenovo market share was 12.9 Million units in Smartphone segment.
@GeeKv2, Last year in the Microsoft v. Motorola patent case court ruled that Redmond owes a $1.7 million in annual royalties for using Motorola's standards-related Wi-Fi and video-encoding patents in every Xbox 360 and Windows 7 PC sold, rather than the $4 billion Motorola had originally demanded. This clearly shows that Googled overvalued the patents.
Android-related licensees other than Samsung may be vulnerable at this opint....the pressure is on for Google as it makes this move. Lenovo is a bit more in the clear having spread out its interests in a number of markets now.
How do you that Samsung has not paid enough to Google? That deal I pointed out could be worth several million dollars. Patent licensing is not a short term money maker. It takes a long time which Google is still working on since it still holds them.
