China Mobile & Lenovo join hands to launch Android 2009
Between February and March 2009, it is planned to launch a Google Android mobile phone in China. However, unlike the US, China Mobile will not go with Taiwanese PDA manufacturer HTC but have opted to work with Lenovo Mobile for the release of the first Google powered android phone in China.
Although when looking at the Lenovo website is a tad difficult to get over excited about this announcement as Lenovo’s current range of mobile phones looks much like the rest of the Chinese mobile phone manufacturer sites and distinctly lack any eye candy like the likes of Apple, BlackBerry and of course Nokia.
Lenovo being the 4th largest manufacturer of PCs in the worlds may be a tad over ambitious with this given the unpopularity of PDA style handsets from PC makers such as HP iPAQ, and Dell Axim, who now hold 3.3% of the global PDA market share behind the likes of HTC, Nokia and RIM.
