Late to the Party
Fortune Tech were lucky duckies and got to interview Lenovo CEO Yuanqing Yang.
When asked if his company can catch up to Apple or Samsung in smartphone sales, Yang replied:
Definitely, over time. Our mission is to surpass them.
Thanks, Yang. Noted.
Let’s check in each year for the next five years. See how that surpassing thing goes.
If you’ll indulge me for a moment, Mister Yang, sir: Now that you own Motorola, might I suggest going all future-retro with new models that look like the StarTAC and RAZR? Kids these days eat up olde timey technology gadgets.
You know, the smartphone market is still growing, but it’s also getting fairly mature. It might be wiser to use a blue ocean strategy and purse the next thing, versus swimming with the sharks in the smartphone red ocean.
