Lenovo will continue using the Motorola brand alongside with the Lenovo brand in Western countries and as Lenovo in Asia. In some markets like India and China they will sell the two mobile brands devices.
"Moto and Lenovo have different brand positions, so we try to leverage these two brands to maximise our marketshare in a particular market,” said Liu Jun, president of Lenovo's mobile business group.
“Our global strategy is a two-brand strategy, which means if there is a market demand, we would like to bring both brands in that market. In South East Asia, for example, we will probably bring the Motorola brand to a few countries.”
