Article comments

Lenovo has announced plans to release smartphones on a global scale to cash in on the booming market.

The company said: "We won't stop at laptops and tablets - for the first time, Lenovo is making plans to sell smartphones outside China."

Some of Lenovo's latest smartphones include the K800, the first Intel-powered smartphone and the quad-core LePhone K860. Lenovo is a Google partner making smartphones with the Android operating system.

However, Lenovo confirmed the UK is not part of its global smartphone plan.

"Lenovo will continue to drive growth and innovation in PCs while expanding across four screens (PC, tablet, smartphone, smartTV) of devices and into the eco system of cloud, services and other applications that make up the PC+ market. While Lenovo is always looking at expansion opportunities for new products and markets, there are no plans to launch smartphones in the UK. Confirmed launch markets outside of China are Russia, Indonesia, India, Philippines and Vietnam."
