Lenovo Reorganizes, Creates Mobile Phone Group
Lenovo today revealed plans to rearrange its internal business units. The company will divide its two-part organization into four parts, each tackling a specific business. The four groups will be PC, mobile, enterprise, and cloud services. Lenovo's current head of consumer products, Liu Jun, is set to lead the mobile business group, which will focus on smartphones and tablets. Lenovo recently announced plans to buy IBM's low-cost server business, which will be added to the cloud group. The changes are set to go into effect April 1. Lenovo hopes the altered structure will help it focus better on each individual unit. Earlier this month, Lenovo announced the Vibe Z, a high-end Android smartphone that supports LTE 4G. Though the bulk of Lenovo's phone sales are in its home market of China, the company wants to enter the U.S. smartphone market.
