If sharing is caring, then Amazon cares an awful lot about Lenovo, the Chinese electronics manufacturer that is building a version of Echo...with Amazon's blessing. Lenovo is calling its Echo clone Smart Assistant and like Echo it is powered by Amazon's Alexa digital assistant. That means users will be able to do all the same things they already can with Echo, but with a competing smart speaker that adds a bit of style to the Echo's cylindrical design. Obviously Lenovo and Amazon came to some kind of licensing agreement here, one that Amazon feels is worth the risk of cannibalizing sales of its... Read more...

Motorola righted many of the wrong of the first-generation Moto 360 with the second-generation model, which was launched in late 2015. However, some still weren’t happy with the $349 staring price tag for the non-Sport model. Then there was still the fact that the “flat tire” display remained even after the first-generation model was heavily criticized for the design choice (read the HotHardware review here). Well, if the price was the only thing holding you back from purchasing a Moto 360, Verizon hopes to erase that doubt. The nation’s largest wireless carrier is discounting the smartwatch from...

Lenovo is making a pretty big push for Moto Z Mods, those snap-on accessories that extend or otherwise improve the functionality of the Moto Z handset. And why not? As one of the company's television commercials points out, the smartphone form factor has remained relatively the same for about the past decade without too much innovation to get excited about. The question is, are Mods the answer?Motorola's newest daddy seems to think so. Lenovo, which acquired Motorola from Google for $2.91 billion in early 2014, indicated a bit of buyer's remorse earlier this year when it said that it's "integration... Read more...
Motorola’s original Moto 360 was the headlining hardware for the launch of Android Wear 1.0 in the summer of 2014. The smartwatch garnered praise for its sleek, circular design, but was widely panned for sluggish performance and poor battery life.

Google’s Android Wear 2.0 platform is scheduled to debut during the first half of 2017, but Lenovo Moto will sit this one out says Shakil Barkat, Moto’s head... Read more...
Lenovo is already a juggernaut in the PC business, as it has sat atop the global leaderboard for the past few years. However, its share of the PC market could get a little bit bigger if reports coming out of South Korea are indeed accurate. According to The Korea Herald, in an effort to divest itself of underperforming and unprofitable business units, Samsung is looking to sell its PC business. Lenovo is reportedly in talks to acquire the unit in a deal that could be worth $850 million. This move comes just months after Samsung sold its printer unit to HP Inc. for just over $1 billion. “Considering... Read more...
