Lenovo rumoured to be in talks to buyout HTC

HTC have been battling up hill for a while now even with the success of the HTC One their recent first quarterly loss doesn’t bold well and has led to rumours that Lenovo are looking to buy the Taiwanese brand.

With the shrinking demand in PC’s and laptops, Lenovo have been focussing hard on their Android phone lineup have have launched some stunning hardware such as the Intel powered Lenovo K900. However, they are only focussing on the local Chinese audience, and purchasing a brand such as HTC could catapult them where they want to be, the international scene.

Gizchina News of the week

Obviously HTC and Lenovo have not commented on the rumours, and just last week HTC’s chairwoman Cher Wang denied HTC were looking at a buyout. Still this hasn’t prevented the rumours from being stirred up!

Is Lenovo buying HTC good for HTC, or is it just a great chance for Lenovo to gain a larger share of the smartphone pie?

    Why lenovo? It’s not like you can’t produce your own (semi decent) mobile phone?

    I can’t think of any benefit from this, anyone?

          Electronics… but lenovo is targeting the smartphone branch. And btw, in my country (RO) on the smartphone segment, Lenovo is weak.

            Same can be said for HTC in my country. Heck now Lenovo has more market presence in smartphone than HTC here.

            Guess it depend on the price.
