Lenovo’s spate of new business deals will not include a PC venture with Sony, that’s according to a statement from Sony in response to speculation.
Reuters was among the media to suggest that Lenovo — which recently announced deals to buy Motorola from Google and acquire IBM’s low-end server business — was in talks with Sony with a view to “taking over” the overseas branch of its Vaio PC business.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
The statement from the Japanese company does, however, confirm that it is exploring a range of possibilities for its PC business in the future:
A press report on February 1, 2014 stated that Sony Corporation (“Sony”) is discussing with Lenovo Group (“Lenovo”) the possible establishment of a joint venture for the PC business. As Sony has announced previously, Sony continues to address various options for the PC business, but the press report on a possible PC business alliance between Sony and Lenovo is inaccurate.
