China's Lenovo to launch game console

China's Lenovo to launch game console
Mon Aug 30, 3:00 am ET

BEIJING (AFP) – China's IT giant Lenovo has said it will launch a video games console this year to vie with Nintendo's Wii, Microsoft's XBox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3 in the booming motion-gaming market.

The company -- China's biggest computer maker -- has developed a prototype of the eBox console and has set up a new company called Beijing eedoo Technology Ltd. to produce and market it.

The eBox, which can be connected to high-definition television sets and the Internet, is a controller-free console that can be operated by gestures, according to a statement sent by Lenovo to AFP on Monday.

The Lenovo console "targets the entertainment needs of 120 million Chinese urban households" and will be released by the end of this year in China, the company said.

It will then be unveiled gradually in the Asia-Pacific region and other overseas markets, the company said.

The eBox would be the second in the world to operate with motion-sensor technology, with Microsoft due to launch its Kinect system for the XBox 360 on November 4.

No financial details about Lenovo's investment in the new product or the new company were disclosed.

Lenovo's foray into the video game sector is the company's latest move to diversify its business into new product types including smartphones and tablet computers.

The company launched LePhone, its first signature mobile product, earlier this year.

At the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January, Lenovo unveiled a hybrid personal computer called the IdeaPad U1 -- a laptop with a screen that could be detached and used as a separate tablet computer, media reports have said.

Lenovo, which bought IBM's personal computer business in 2005, is the world's fourth-biggest PC maker by shipments behind Hewlett-Packard, Dell and Acer.

The company holds about a 30 percent share of the Chinese market, according to Chinese press reports.

This is a good news. It's cool, because it don't have a controller, the input system is similar to XBOX360 Kintect. Btw, I disappointing with the name, it sound like Shanzhai version of Xbox. They should change it before the release day.

I hope the price for both the machine and games are cheap. So the majority of Chinese people can buy it.

In my opinion. This is good for China domestic gaming industry. I hope China gaming industry will flourish because of this console.

May be this is their official website:

No one play XBOX360? Since it's only XBOX360 can play pirate game. It's very popular in my country, while PS3 is almost death.

What games mainland Chinese play in their PC?
Are they play latest games like Bioshock 2, GTA4, etc?

It's too expensive to buy a console and then have to buy non-pirated games for most Chinese. MMORPGs are the most popular in China, because one chooses how much to spend and can stop at any time (plus they're very fun and addicting, of course)

Go..Lenovo! NEC Forms PC Joint Venture With Lenovo

http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-...27-705212.html

(Combines NEC's earnings with news of joint venture, executive comments.)


By Kana Inagaki
Of DOW JONES NEWSWIRES

TOKYO (Dow Jones)--China's Lenovo Group Ltd. (LNVGY) and NEC Corp. (6701.TO) confirmed Thursday that they will form a joint venture in the personal-computer business as the industry becomes increasingly crowded with other devices including smartphones and tablets.

The partnership with Lenovo will allow NEC to concentrate its resources in key growth areas such as cloud computing while distancing itself from a marginally profitable PC business. For Lenovo, the deal would help to lower manufacturing costs. The deal comes as NEC also reported Thursday a wider-than-expected net loss for its fiscal third quarter as cautious Japanese firms trim their technology spending.

As part of the deal, the companies said in a statement they will establish a new company called Lenovo NEC Holdings B.V., which will be registered in the Netherlands. NEC will receive US$175 million from Lenovo through the issuance of the Chinese company's shares. Lenovo, through a unit, will own a 51% stake in the joint venture, while NEC will hold a 49% stake.

"The agreement with NEC is a perfect fit for our strategy. It reinforces our commitment to our core PC business while at the same time, providing important new opportunities for growth in Japan," Lenovo Chief Executive Yang Yuanqing said in the statement.

Lenovo held about 8% of the global PC market by unit shipments in 2009 according to research firm IDC, putting it in fourth place behind Hewlett-Packard Co., Dell Inc. and Acer Inc. (2353.TW) of Taiwan. NEC was the 12th largest player in 2009, with a market share of only 0.9%, although it remains a leader at home with 18% of the market. The two companies said they will keep their own brands and seek synergy by utilizing NEC's product development capabilities and Lenovo's procurement resources.

NEC President Nobuhiro Endo said the tie-up with Lenovo will allow the company to accelerate the global expansion of its information-technology business. A joint venture with Lenovo is also part of NEC's wider efforts to realign its operations.

As part of its efforts to focus its investment in its information and communication businesses, NEC last year merged its mobile-phone handset business with those of Hitachi Ltd. (6501.TO) and Casio Computer Co. (6952.TO) to create a single cellphone company. It has also spun off its struggling semiconductor unit.

NEC said separately it logged a Y26.53 billion net loss (US$320 million) for the fiscal third quarter ended Dec. 31, compared with a net loss of Y9.61 billion a year earlier. Operating loss widened to Y13.48 billion from Y7.53 billion. Revenue fell 13% to Y720.72 billion from Y825.36 billion.

"The appetite for IT capital spending among our domestic clients has not recovered as much as we had anticipated," said NEC Executive Vice President Takao Ono.

Ono acknowledged that it would be "extremely tough" for the company to meet its earnings targets for the full fiscal year ending in March, even as it maintained its forecast for a net profit of Y15 billion and an operating profit of Y100 billion on revenue of Y3.3 trillion.

With Steve Jobs leaving Apple for good someday (soon), I believe Lenovo will be able to beat Apple.

Lenovo Will Focus on LePad, LePhone to Meet Apple Threat
By Bloomberg News - Jan 27, 2011


Liu Chuanzhi, chairman of Lenovo Group Ltd. Photographer: Qilai Shen/Bloomberg

Lenovo Group Ltd., China’s biggest maker of personal computers, said it will put an “extreme focus” on its LePad tablet computer and LePhone smartphone to meet a rising threat at home from Apple Inc.

“We have an extreme focus on the innovation of LePad and LePhone because these products will dominate the future market,” Chairman Liu Chuanzhi said in an interview at the World Economic Forum in Davos yesterday. “Anyone who loses this battle will be phased out from the history of this industry.”

Lenovo, which gets half of its sales in China, faces competition from Apple after the iPhone-maker last year opened three stores in a market Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook has called a “top priority.” Consumers may shun Lenovo’s tablet because it will adopt a modified version of the Android system that won’t be compatible with programs on Google Inc.’s online app store, according to analysts such as Vincent Chen.

“Lenovo will have to convince vendors they can grow big, otherwise consumers will not be interested because there will be very limited choice of software," said Chen, a Taipei-based analyst with Yuanta Securities Co. "Lenovo is the PC king in China, so they think they can differentiate and attract enough interest. In my view that’s a challenge.”

Apple didn’t open its first store in China until 2008. Apple’s four stores in Beijing and Shanghai generate, on average, the company’s highest traffic and highest revenue, Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer said last week.

NEC Venture

Lenovo, maker of Thinkpad laptops, is diversifying to boost revenue and seeking to expand outside of China. The company said yesterday it agreed to invest $175 million to form a venture with NEC Corp. and expand in the Japanese PC market.

Lenovo started selling the LePhone in China in May, and plans to launch the LePad by the end of this quarter, according to Liu.

When Lenovo launched the LePhone in May, it projected sales of more than 1 million units in 12 months. Sales were initially reduced by a supply problem with display screens that wasn’t resolved until September, Chief Executive Officer Yang Yuanqing said in November. At the time, he projected sales of the device last quarter would be about 120,000 units.

The iPhone is Apple’s top-selling product, accounting for 39 percent of revenue last fiscal year. The iPad, introduced in April, accounted for 17 percent of sales last quarter.

Catching Up

“History has proved we are good at catching up with the market’s leaders,” Liu said. “Though Apple is winning a significant share in the Chinese market, it has not gained a clearly leading position yet. Our advantage is we know this market better.”

Apple’s iPhone is the best-selling smartphone in China with first-half shipments of more than 900,000 last year, according to industry consultant BDA China Ltd. The company will start selling the iPad 3G model in China this quarter, the Shanghai Daily reported this week, citing an unidentified official at China Unicom.

Cupertino, California-based Apple posted a 78 percent jump in quarterly profit in the three months ended December, helped by holiday demand.

Lenovo received 98 percent of its 2009 sales from personal computers, and less than 1 percent from mobile phones. The company had 10 percent of the world PC market in unit terms during the first nine months of last year, ranking it behind Hewlett Packard Co., Acer Inc. and Dell Inc., according to data from industry researcher IDC.

The company said yesterday Lenovo and NEC will transfer their Japan PC assets into the venture, named Lenovo NEC Holdings BV, in which Lenovo holds a 51 percent stake.

The new venture would help Lenovo gain on Round Rock, Texas-based Dell, the third-ranked PC maker with 12.7 percent of the global share, IDC data shows.

lol Nec's revenue is $43.5 billion while Lenovo's is $14.9 billion. So it would be the other way around.

BTW Lenovo+Nec won't beat Apple anytime soon. Samsung is the fastest growing one right now, and they are challenging apple. So Lenovo+nec has to beat Samsung first and of course LG, Dell, Toshiba, Sony, Hewlet-Packard and many others.

I hope with the advanced Japanese NEC people combine with Lenovo, they can create mind blowing products. Of course, they need to think outside the box and establish a revolutionary RnD management system. Studying how Samsung success is a good first step too.

They can't just making a common android phone and tablet. A lot of electronic companies in China sell those stuffs too, even cheaper.

Samsung is a conglomerate company with a pretty wide product range and sets foot in almost every field of communication, personal computers & consumer electronics while Lenovo is mainly a computer manufacturer producing PCs meant for a small group of ppl relative to the large target comsumers of a conglomerate and in this regard, lenovo's main rivals are HP, DELL, Acer and Apple MAC. Samsung is by now a small player in term of PC manufacturing, but then, samsung is a considerably successful multicompany by virtue of its absolutely competitive edge in semiconductor (memory one to be exact), displays and handsets.


Samsung's Q4 results.

As for Apple, I think its a highly over-estimated company despite the fact that its every product is all highly rated and I love them overall, but its closeness also makes it possible to overpower Apple for others.

China's ZTE has dropped Apple to the 5th in the world cellphone share.

Yes, they can as long as their android products are not deeply customised.

Samsung controls South Korea or should I say Samsung is South Korea. Does South Korea have an anti-trust law? I can't imagine any one Chinese company controlling so many industries in China, and I doubt many countries would even allow a "Chinese Samsung" to enter their market.

Quote:
From Wikipedia:

Samsung Group Divisions

Electronics Industries
Financial Services
Chemical Industries
Machinery & Heavy Industries
Engineering & Construction
Retail & Entertainment
Apparel & Advertisement
Education & Medical Services
Trading & Resource development
Food supplier & security services

Samsung Group accounts for more than 20% of South Korea's total exports. In many domestic industries, Samsung Group is the sole monopoly dominating a single market; its revenue as large as some countries' total GDP. In 2006, Samsung Group would have been the 35th largest economy in the world if ranked, larger than that of Argentina.

The company has a powerful influence on the country's economic development, politics, media and culture, being a major driving force behind the Miracle on the Han River. Many businesses today use Samsung's international success as a role model

Competition law, known in the United States as antitrust law, are laws that promote or maintain market competition by regulating anti-competitive conduct.
