The Chinese Manufacturer Lenovo is all set to merge its Mobile Business Group (MBG) with Motorola. Now, Motorola will be holding the responsibility of designing, developing and manufacturing of all Lenovo smartphones.
Lenovo said in a press statement, “To create a faster, leaner business model, we will align our smartphone development production and manufacturing and better leverage the complementary strengths of Lenovo and Motorola to quickly drive growth. Lenovo’s Mobile Business Group (MBG) will continue to drive the overall mobile business, but will now on Motorola to design, develop and manufacture smartphone products.”
Moto and Lenovo will still remain separate companies in the market for their smartphones, but Lenovo may join its smartphones business into a single brand under Motorola at some point of time.
Lenovo has a long way to go, and joining with Motorola it seems to be a smart move from Lenovo. The Chinese major is all set to launch the camera-centric Vibe Shot in India, on the other hand Motorola will bring its third generation Moto X soon.
