IDC's smartphone report demonstrates that Lenovo continues to have outstanding balance and strong momentum across our entire product portfolio. It has been a month of milestones. First, record high PC share as we approach 20% and strengthen our leadership in that market. Then for the first time we became the number 3 tablet provider in the world, with 64% growth. And now, record smartphone performance in China, solid expansion outside China and global growth of nearly 40% have made us an even stronger number 4 player globally."

"With our continued organic growth and expansion, plus the opportunity presented by our acquisition of Motorola, pending final approvals, we are in great position to maintain our momentum. We have tremendous balance between our core business – especially a profitable PC business – and growth engines like tablet, smartphone, enterprise and ecosystem. We expect to continue to build on these strong results."

Motorola is winning in the market, and their recent results show why they can be such a strong growth engine for Lenovo once our acquisition is approved. Their recent product launches have been successful. Their performance is even stronger than expected. And this is the perfect time for Lenovo to acquire this business and accelerate our own global mobile growth. Once our acquisition is complete, we will be able to bring more innovative products to more consumers around the world – and we will be able to build on the momentum Motorola has built in the market."
