Seems a strange move

Sony is a CE appliance maker, is it not? And a lot of such CE appliances have migrated or will be migrating to Internet Protocol connectivity. They will depend on the Internet. This is true for TVs, radios, and kitchen appliances too. I wonder if Sony has all this IP connectivity expertise elsewhere, or whether they just plan to outsource all this work.

Certainly, as of now, there aren't a lot of CE appliance makers that seem capable of designing really good "connected products." PCs, tablets, and smartphones seem to have that figured out. Where would Sony look, if it sells Vaio?

I'm not sure that it makes sense for Lenovo to purchase Vaio.  They already have their PC line.  I can understand the purchase of Motorola since that gets them into another business.
