Reuters came across rumors that Lenovo may be in talks with Sony over a partnership with the loss-making VAIO PC unit. Sony called the report inaccurate but confirmed they're looking at various possibilities for VAIO.
Japan's Sony Corp and Chinese technology company Lenovo Group are in talks about a possible joint venture to take over Sony's loss-making Vaio PC business overseas, Japanese broadcaster NHK reported on Saturday.
The Japanese electronics and media giant called the report inaccurate while acknowledging that it was looking at various possibilities for the unit.
"Sony continues to address various options for the PC business, but the press report on a possible PC business alliance between Sony and Lenovo is inaccurate," the company said in a statement.
