That sounds as if Lenovo really has found a way to use Windows 8 to spark increased sales. But as the Gershwin song goes, it ain't necessarily so. Computerworld reports that a significant reason for high earnings is the company's PC sales in China, saying that Lenovo:
"...has managed to weather the slowdown by taking advantage of the Chinese PC market, where it has an over 30% market share. Close to half of the company's revenue comes from the country, now the world's largest PC market."
So it's not necessarily innovative hardware that's driving growth, but instead Lenovo focusing on its home market, which happens to be the world's largest. In addition, Computerworld reports that Lenovo smartphone sales are up dramatically, helping boost the bottom line. Smartphone shipments increased a whopping 206% compared to a year previous.
