Chinese PC giant starts its internationlization in the beginning of the Lunar new year. This time they choose Mortorola, the once cellphone giant, and now more and more Chinese companies want to go abroad and find their bigger arena around the world.
So do you think it's a good deal ? What expectations would you have for this purchase?

  It went with a banggggggggg. But it could still be a flop when the dust settles. It was not a crown jewel for Google, you know. Hard to say it will be a gold mine for Lenevo.

Google retained virtually all of the Motorola patent portfolio (defence of the Android OS), the actual handset business has a very low market share.

Will need some serious "must-have" features to claw back market share and be a cash cow if they are to compete against the Samsung, Apple and a lesser extent, Nokia/Microsoft in the smartphone market.

They may look at repositioning the phones into the "emerging markets" are and produce low-cost, low feature-set devices for the huge markets in less affluent emerging markets sector - again, Nokia is pretty well established in most of those markets.

  Oh, I see. Nokia's phones are truly heavy-duty ones, including low-cost, no-frills phones. But I'm not sure if Levono could produce industrial-strength and cheap  phones enable Lenovo to  take on such foreign household names like Nokia in developing nations. Above all, Nokia also rolls out such low-end phones targeting  the poor or the young, and the quality of its phones is solid.

  Lenovo may be considering using Motorola's brand clout as a means to get foot in the door in such markets, just like what it did years ago when Lenovo  snapped up IBM's  personal computer business in a bid to tap into IBM's brand and marketing  influence in China.
