Lenovo preparing a ‘more innovative’ Motorola smartphone for a July launch
Yang revealed the news as part of a chat with The Wall Street Journal, but didn't offer much in the way of details:
Mr. Yang said he intends to leverage Lenovo's Motorola brand to penetrate the smartphone market in the U.S. The company is launching a "more innovative, more attractive" device in July aimed at U.S. consumers, he noted.
Yang also took a bit of a swipe at Apple during his chat:
Mr. Yang predicted that Apple Inc. has reached a ceiling in the U.S. market, while Android still has room for growth. "Apple already has more than 50% share in the U.S. Can you expect more? I don't think so," he said. "I think Android will take more share."
As previously reported, Motorola Mobility will remain as a division under Lenovo, but future smartphones will ditch the Motorola branding in favor of the Moto and Vibe brands.
