Apple is in for tough competition after Google saying Motorola to Lenovo yesterday. Google sold the tech company at $2.91 billion to the Chinese Pc Maker giving it levage to expand and thus pose a threat to Apple, which would now face a more focused Google which no hardware operations to worry about.
Getting rid of Motorola helps Google create a more cohesive user experience across the different vendors who are in direct competition with Apple. Companies like Samsung who have a Patent partnership with Google are going to be the driving platforms for the tech company technologies.
Meanwhile, a combined Lenovo and Motorola has the potential to take a large chunk of the market, threatening Apple’s position as Lenovo has a strong track record for dominating markets it enters.
Lenovo is also one of the fastest-growing smartphone makers in China, a market Apple is still exploring with its recent tie-up with China Mobile.
Although Lenovo won’t become Apple’s biggest threat overnight, but a few years down the line, it may be Samsung and Lenovo jockeying for the top mobile spot, not Samsung and Apple.
