Lenovo to focus on China for smart TV sales
February 9, 2012
China’s Lenovo, the world’s No.2 PC maker, plans to sell smart televisions in China and has no immediate plans to ship overseas due to a lack of content, CEO Yang Yuanqing has said.
“We’ll just focus on China for our smart TV sales. We’ve shipped tablet PCs globally. Our smartphones are currently still sold just in China, though we hope to sell to emerging markets,” CEO and chairman Yang Yuanqing told Reuters in an interview. “We need to look for good content providers and carriers first before we can sell overseas.”
Yang’s comments came after the Beijing-based, Hong Kong-listed company reported a net profit of $153.46 million for the three months ended December, up 54 percent from $99.65 million a year earlier
