    (click for full article)

    "Nov. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Lenovo Group Ltd., the world's second-biggest maker of personal-computers, will offer upgraded versions of its smartphone and tablet computer in China, where the company is starting a cloud-computing service for consumers.

    The new "Lenovo Cloud" service allows users to store and download data on remote computer servers with devices including phones and tablets, the company said in an e-mailed statement today. Lenovo is aiming to make new devices that offer better integration with cloud-computing technology, it said.


    The computer maker follows Chinese Web companies including Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. and Baidu Inc. in offering cloud services in China, the world's biggest Internet market by users. Internationally, Apple Inc. aims to add users to its iCloud service, which allows online sharing of music, photographs and documents for iPhone and iPad users, and compete against rival cloud technology by Google Inc.


    Lenovo will offer new versions of its LePhone and LePad products, and introduce LeTV, a television device, according to the statement. LeTV will start selling in the first quarter of next year, the company said, without indicating when it will introduce the upgraded smartphone and tablet computer models.


    The Chinese company, which acquired the PC unit of International Business Machines Corp. in 2005 to expand overseas, will also upgrade its online applications store."

    "Lenovo is the latest company to plan a smart TV push, with the Chinese firm announcing it plans to unveil the first "LeTV" - along with a cloud service for shared multimedia - in Q1 2012. The company declined to detail the LeTV technically, the WSJ reports, leaving questions around whether it will be another win for Google TV or instead run a home-grown OS."

    Lenovo's New IdeaTV To Drop Early Next Year - Google TV Inside? (click for full article)

    "Earlier today we told you about Lenovo's new line of Android powered smartphones and tablets and now we've learned that the Chinese company is planning on getting into the smart TV business with a new line of "ideaTV's" that will launch early next year.

    Although Google TV was never specifically mentioned, Lenovo did make it point to say the televisions would offer connectivity with their new line of Android powered devices. This leaves Google TV as the most logical choice as an OS for this new line."
