Lenovo Shipped Record 18.7M Smartphones in Q4 2014
Lenovo just completed its first full quarter of business as the owner of Motorola and, with its $2.91 billion acquisition from Google under its wing, the Chinese company shipped a record 18.7 million smartphones in its most recent Q4 2014 quarter.
That figure included 7.8 million smartphones from Motorola, and represented an increase on the 16 million devices that Lenovo shipped in the previous quarter. For its entire year, the company said it shipped a best-ever haul of 76 million smartphones.
Lenovo hit records in other areas, too. It shipped a record 60 million PCs during its 2014 financial year, marking the first year that its smartphone shipment volume beat that of its PCs.
