Lenovo was founded in 1984 by Liu Chuanzhi and is headquartered in China. The company was constituted as a legal corporation in 1988 under the moniker ‘Legend,' and did business under that name for nearly two decades. To enhance its global footprint, the company's name was changed to Lenovo in 2002. Personal computers, notebooks, tablets, smartphones, workstations, servers, electronic storage devices, information technology management software, and smart wearables are all covered by the corporation.
It bought the personal computer division of IBM, an American information technology firm, in 2005. Lenovo became the world's third-largest computer manufacturer as a result of this acquisition. Lenovo released its first smartphone, LePhone, in 2010.
In 2011, the company launched a joint venture to produce personal computers with NEC, a Japanese electronics giant. In 2014, Lenovo bought Motorola Mobility from Google. The deal comprised Motorola's Moto and Droid smartphone lines. Despite the fact that Google retained Motorola's advanced technology and project units, Lenovo was granted royalty-free licences to use all of Google's patents. In the same year, the firm also purchased IBM's Intel-based server business.
The Lenovo K13 Note by Lenovo will be launched soon in India. It has a 6.50-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 720x1600 pixels included with the phone.
Lenovo provides a variety of software and services in addition to its devices. REACHit, SHAREit, WRITEit, SECUREit, SYNCit, SNAPit and SEEit are among them. Lenovo Connect is a wireless roaming service offered by the corporation.
