Lenovo faces uphill battle in U.S. smartphone market

Christopher Null | May 29, 2013
Can the brand behind ThinkPad crack the Apple/Samsung duopoly?

The company's forays into more mobile products in the States (i.e. tablets) have received mostly positive reviews. But those have largely been extensions of the very well-received and mature ThinkPad line (and based on Windows), not entries into whole new markets.

I'm expecting phones that turn heads but hardly shake up the market, business features or no. ("Corporate phone buyers" are increasingly becoming a thing of the past as businesses embrace the simpler, less costly world of BYOD. See also: Blackberry, struggles post-iPhone.) But maybe I'm just skeptical that the AppSung hegemony can be broken by anyone at this point.

What about you? What features would convince you to make the switch and buy a Lenovo phone come 2014?
