Lenovo is definitely changing things and keeping its strategy fresh, something that Acer might want to learn from.
Having decided to make Intel and ARM-powered Android tablet/laptop hybrids
, the company is considering what existing products to drop.
According to a different rumor than the last one, though one from the same source
, Lenovo might scrap the IdeaPad business.
Lenovo and Think will be adjusted into two sub-groups in April (2013). After the IdeaPad business is transferred to the existing Lenovo sub-group, the IdeaPad brand itself will be slowly withdrawn.
The move is similar to how Lenovo's Mobile Internet Digital Home business group (MIDH) will be merged into the new sub-group.
Fortunately, no staff will be fired due to the reorganization. The process is more of an internal optimizing and image building procedure than anything else.
