Lenovo Group, one of the world’s largest PC makers, is in talks with NEC Corp., which wants to sell its money-losing division to an investor. Lenovo and NEC already supply personal computers to Japan under NEC brand-name, hence, the deal will hardly be completely unexpected.
NEC has until now said its mobile business is an important part of its overall operations. But after two years of losses the company is shedding assets to bolster profitability, reports Reuters news-agency. Lenovo is known for taking over rivals in order to expand market share, therefore, the news should not be considered as a complete surprise.
