A number of little tidbits have been slipping out from Lenovo HQ, so we’ve gathered them up in this post to keep our dear readers in the know.
Right off the bat, Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing is touting a strong drive within Lenovo to continue their strong growth. He pointed out in particular the growing market for tablet devices, ala iPad and LePad, which Lenovo wants to cash in on. Not one known for beating around the bush, Yuanqing had the following to say:
“We will keep growing faster than the market average, than the competition.”
Speaking of tablets, Yang also confirmed that their LePad slate tablet will be coming to the U.S. sometime next year. There is no word on pricing, but we do know that it should debut in China in December.
As part of their plan for global domination (er, of the PC market), they are also once again publicly looking for companies to put in their pocket. The last we heard of such talk was back in April, when they were considering buying Palm (which was snapped up by HP) and Brazilian PC maker Positivo.
While there are no details on what companies they are trying to court, Positivo hasn’t been snapped up yet and would be a logical choice given their strong position in the South American PC market, an area that Lenovo is drooling over.
