Lenovo is the largest hardware brand in China and dominates 30% of the Asian country’s market. Specifically, Liu said that Lenovo believes that “they are lucky that Steve Jobs has the temperament he has and that he doesn’t care much about China”, in addition to stating that if Apple made an effort in China, Lenovo would have serious problems .
I have never visited China and obviously I cannot say how Cupertino’s company has penetrated there, but if I were Lui Chanzi I would not be so happy. Apple already has an Apple Store in Beijing, is about to open another iconic store in Shanghai and according to plans that were leaked, in a short time 25 official company stores could appear throughout China.
Not to mention that Apple computers enjoy certain privileges that other computers don’t have in a country where certain network content is censored: Macs are not controlled. We’ll see if in the end Lenovo will still be happy or if they’ll have to get their act together.
