We at Android Central only knew of Lenovo as the maker of laptops and tablets. Admittedly, we're a fan of their PC work but we had no idea that they were big time makers of cell phones and smartphones in China. Until now.

China Mobile and Lenovo will team together to launch an Android Device for the Chinese Market in Early 2009. Spurning the likes of HTC, Motorola, Nokia etc. China Mobile chose Lenovo to capitalize on the skyrocketing demand for a G1 and/or Android device.

We're still a bit confused at choosing Lenovo though. What's wrong with the G1?
