“So is there a Lenovo iTunes equivalent on the way, especially in China where the company’s “protect and attack” strategy has the firm aggressively fighting Apple and Samsung for dominance in all-things Internet from PCs and tablets to smartphones and smart TVs?
“Jerry Yang brings good quality Internet experience to a hardware company which has ambitions to harvest revenues from content,” Jean-Louis Lafayeedney, an analyst in Hong Kong, told Bloomberg news.
Vincent Chen, an analyst in nearby Taipei, reinforced that thought.
Bloomberg noted that Chen believes Lenovo “must be considering creation of some service with music, video, or web storage.”
“It is a cloud environment,” Chen said. “Every player is trying to build its own community in the cloud. Internet transaction and ads can be the ultimate goal, for which Jerry should be able to provide valuable suggestions.””
