It's funny how quick some big tech buyouts are while other's seem to languish. For instance, even though it was announced that Microsoft would be buying Nokia eight months ago (September 13th, 2013), the actual merger will only just now finalize this coming Friday (April 25th). On the flipside, we are already receiving intel regarding the first smartphone being developed jointly between Motorola and Lenovo, even though that merger announcement was only made in January of this year.
Of course, in the long run, it's possible that the merger will take about as long between Lenovo and Motorola as the one between Microsoft and Nokia, but it still seems like Lenovo is moving more quickly than Microsoft. The rumor we have for you today suggests that Motorola and Lenovo are already working on their first collaborative effort, which will be a new smartphone designed "from the ground up." This means it is unlikely to be the MotoX+1, which is not too surprising since that was probably in motion before the merger was announced.
We don't have anything more to go on at this time, but we are looking forward to any new intel regarding Lenovorola's first project together. We will keep you updated!
