Lenovo Recalls ThinkPad Batteries Over Fire Hazard

Tyler Lee March 31, 2014

Lenovo Recalls ThinkPad Batteries Over Fire HazardBattery fires can be nasty business as we have seen in the past, which is why Lenovo has recently recalled around 37,000 ThinkPad batteries over a potential fire hazard. Thankfully these affected models aren’t any of Lenovo’s newer models, but rather those sold between October 2010 to April 2011.

According to a statement released on the US Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website, “This recall involves Lenovo battery packs sold with the following ThinkPad notebook computers: the Edge 11, 13 and 14 series, the T410, T420, T510 and W510 series, and the X100e, X120e, X200, X201 and X201s series. The battery packs were also sold separately.” (more…)

    Lenovo Will Continue Acquiring Companies To Accelerate Growth

    Beijing-based Lenovo recently announced its plans to acquire two major businesses. The company picked up Motorola Mobility from Google for $2.91 billion. It also purchased IBM’s server business for $2.3 billion, Lenovo previously purchased the company’s PC division back in 2005 for $1.25 billion. The idea behind these acquisitions is to accelerate Lenovo’s growth in these particular market segments. Lenovo has said that it won’t shy away from writing more cheques in the future for additional acquisitions.

    Report Speculates That Lenovo Could Become Second Largest Android OEM

    Tyler Lee March 14, 2014

    Report Speculates That Lenovo Could Become Second Largest Android OEMWhen you think of the brand Lenovo, chances are you probably think of laptops and not necessarily tablets or smartphones, despite the fact that Lenovo has released those types of products in the past. In fact as far as being an Android manufacturer is concerned, we’re not sure if their size might match up to other players in the market, like Samsung, LG, HTC, Sony, and so on.

    However a recent report from DigiTimes has suggested that it is possible that Lenovo could soon become the second largest Android manufacturer, right behind Samsung. Why and how this is possible? Well apparently Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility from Google will play a huge role in helping Lenovo achieve that goal. (more…)

    Google Will Own A 6% Stake In Lenovo

    Tyler Lee February 8, 2014

    Google Will Own A 6% Stake In LenovoJust last week, Google confirmed that they would be selling off Motorola Mobility to Lenovo for much less than what Google had originally paid for the company. However it seems that Lenovo would not be keeping everything of Motorola as Google had announced that several of Motorola’s assets, such as Project Ara, would be transferred over to Google instead which might explain why the company was not too fussed about selling Motorola to Lenovo at a lower price than what they paid for it back in 2011. That being said, it looks like Google will also be owning a 6% stake in Lenovo to top things off.

    This is according to a stock exchange filing which revealed that once the deal between Google and Lenovo is complete, Google will be walking away with not only the money that they got from the Motorola sale, but also $750 million worth of stock in Lenovo which is roughly translated into 6% of the company. Based on this, it looks like if Lenovo were to be successful with the Motorola brand, Google would continue reaping some of the benefits, albeit less than what they would had they held onto the Motorola brand. Oddly enough there are analysts out there who feel that despite Lenovo paying a fraction of what Google paid for Motorola, they still overpaid for the company and would find themselves in a difficult situation trying to turn things around.

    Lenovo Intended On Acquiring Motorola Several Years Ago

    Tyler Lee February 4, 2014

    Lenovo Intended On Acquiring Motorola Several Years AgoThe other day it was announced and confirmed that Lenovo would be buying Motorola Mobility from Google for around $3 billion, which is significantly less than what Google paid for the company back in 2011. That being said, it seems that acquiring Motorola Mobility was always part of Lenovo’s plan but due to a blunder, they missed out on the deal which then went to Google. According to Lenovo’s CEO, he stated that the reason Lenovo missed out on the opportunity several years ago was because they approached the wrong Motorola. Motorola had been split into two companies back in 2011: Motorola Solutions and Motorola Mobility.

    Instead of approaching Motorola Mobility, Lenovo instead talked to Motorola Solutions’ CEO, Greg Brown, where they found that Motorola Solutions had nothing of value to Lenovo. By then it was too late as Google would then go ahead and acquire Motorola Mobility for a whopping $12 billion. Either way all things considered, we guess Lenovo did acquire the company in the end, although we’re not sure if $3 billion would have been considered a steal for the company, or if they would have paid less back in the day.

    Sony Denies Selling Vaio To Lenovo

    Edwin Kee February 4, 2014

    Sony Denies Selling Vaio To LenovoOver the weekend, Japanese broadcaster NHK did report that Sony happened to be talking to Lenovo concerning a strategic partnership which might eventually see Lenovo own the international PC business of Sony’s – where the Vaio name would be the most identifiable one here. Of course, just like how the saying goes, “there is no smoke without fire”, this particular report was hot on the heels of Sony’s recent sharing that their PC division will in all probability report a loss where the existing fiscal year is concerned. Sony has denied that they are discussing on a joint venture with Lenovo, but has yet to close the door completely to potential suitors since they mentioned, “Sony continues to address various options for the PC business, but the press report on a possible PC business alliance between Sony and Lenovo is inaccurate.”

    Lenovo CEO Believes Motorola Can Be Profitable

    If you haven’t heard by now, American icon Motorola has been sold to Lenovo by Google for $2.9 billion. Mountain View paid a lot of money when it initially acquired Motorola Mobility, but under its belt that company wasn’t able to generate any profit. It bled red all over Google’s balance sheets, which some presume is the reason why Google finally decided to cut the cord. Lenovo, a well established PC vendor that’s been wanting to play a greater role in the global smartphone market for quite some time, gets access to all the talent as well as the globally renowned brand name. That might not be enough to return it back to profitability, though Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing is confident that there’s enough potential to make it profitable once again.

    Google To Sell Motorola To Lenovo For $3B [Confirmed]

    Eliane Fiolet January 29, 2014

    motorola-colorful-logoThis report has surfaced on China Daily Report and is spreading like wildfire over the web and social networks: according to them, Lenovo is buying Motorola Mobility from Google for $3 Billion – and yes that would include the patents. First of all the first thing that sounds really wrong about this is that Google purchased Motorola Mobility and the patents for $12B. It’s not like Google needs any cash, but still, that seems like an awfully big discount for a company and brand that is on a slight path upwards. (more…)

The Lenovo ThinkPad 11e series will arrive in two different form factors – the normal laptop, or Lenovo’s innovative Yoga multimode form that boasts of a quartet of unique positions, namely laptop, tablet, tent and stand.

    Lenovo Miix 2 Hits The US And Europe

    Edwin Kee January 29, 2014

    lenovo-miix-2We did take a closer look at the Lenovo Miix 2 range of Windows-powered tablets at CES 2014 earlier this month, where these tablets ran on Intel processors as well as sported various display sizes that ranged from 8″ all the way to 11″. The 8″ model rolled out late last year, so there was not much fanfare around it, while the newer 10″ and 11″ siblings were unveiled at CES. The unveiling of a device as well as availability of said tablet are two different things, which is why we are more than happy to announce that the new Miix 2 10 is available for purchase not only in the US, but also across the pond as well in Europe.
