BEIJING: Chinese computer maker Lenovo is making a strategic move to acquire BlackBerry, which is used by US president Barack Obama and over 5,00,000 US officials, including many in the US Department of Defense. Reports in Wall Street Journal and IT industry publications suggest that Lenovo has already obtained access to the company’s account books.

Lenovo, which acquired IBM’s computer business in 2005, is competing with Prem Watsa-led Fairfax Financial Holdings, which has made an offer of $4.7 billion with a November 4 deadline. But IT industry publications are saying the Chinese firm might face resistance from both US and Canadian regulators.

中国计算机生产商联想做出一个收购黑莓的战略举动,后者被美国总统奥巴马和超过50万名美国官员使用,包括美国国防部的许多官员。《华尔街日报》和IT业刊物暗示联想已经获得了查阅该公司财务信息的权限。

联想在2005年收购了IBM的计算机业务,它正在与加拿大保险公司Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd竞购黑莓,后者提供了价值47亿美元的收购协议,截止日期是11月4日。然而,IT业刊物表示中国公司也许会面临来自美国和加拿大监管部门的阻力。

“Lenovo is based in China, which automatically raises national security red flags. Other Chinese firms, such as Huawei and ZTE, have struggled to acquire US companies,” New York-based Information Week said in an article.

US regulators recently asked Sprint to divest some of its Chinese-made networking infrastructure to pave the way for a separate deal with SoftBank, it said. Chinese telecom maker Huawei, which is headed by a former member of the People’s Liberation Army, has faced resistance in several countries including India and the US because of suspicion that its equipment could pose security risks.

“联想的总部在中国,自然而然引发了国家安全的危险信号。其他中国公司,比如华为和中兴,一直在努力收购美国公司。”纽约《信息周刊》的一篇文章说道。

文章称,美国监管部门最近要求Sprint放弃其中一些中国产网络基础设施,以为其与软银签署单独协议铺平道路。以一名PLA退役军人为首的中国电信设备生产商华为在包括印度和美国在内的几个国家面临阻力,因为人们怀疑其设备可能带来安全风险。

“Lenovo managed to grow share by expanding into the ‘PC plus’ area, including tablets and smartphones,” Andreas Mayer, Lenovo’s executive director, said in a recent interview with China’s Xinhua news agency. Chinese mobile makers are fighting a relentless battle against the rising tide of demand for iPhone and Apple products within the country. Ownership of BlackBerry would give Lenovo an opportunity to take on Apple, observers said.

BlackBerry would also prove to be hugely valuable for Lenovo both because it holds precious technology patents and an enterprise network, which powers the email and BBM messages used across the world. Nearly a million BlackBerrys are believed to be in use by US government officials, half of which are used within the US Department of defense.

联想执行总监Andreas Mayer最近在接受新华社采访时称,“联想设法通过扩展到“PC+”领域来扩大市场份额,这些领域包括平板电脑和智能机。”中国手机制造商正在展开无情的斗争,以应对国内对iPhone和其他苹果产品的需求的日益上升势头。观察家表示,拥有黑莓能够为联想挑战苹果带来机会。

对联想来说,黑莓将被证明是极具价值的,因为后者握有宝贵的技术专利和企业网络。据信,近100万黑莓手机被美国官员使用,其中一半在美国国防部。

I think lenovo should acquire Blackberry it will give then edge over the smartphone market

我认为联想应该收购黑莓,此举能给其在智能机市场上获得优势。

aditya pratham (pune) replies to aditya pratham
Its very difficult them to acquire because Us and Canada law will not allow them due its Chinese & they will say it will affect there security , but think to get competition they should allow to acquire BB.

他们很难收购黑莓,因为他们是中国人,美国和加拿大法律不会放行的,给出的理由将是它会影响安全。然而,要想获得竞争,他们就应该允许联想收购黑莓

Ranjit (pune) replies to aditya pratham
If Lenovo was to acquire BB i am quite sure they will loose the US government contracts. Which will reduce its subscriber base by a huge margin. On the other hand maybe Chinese subscriptions might increase.

如果联想收购黑莓,可以肯定他们将失去美国政府的合同,用户基础将会大幅下降。另一方面,也许中国用户会增加。

Chinese acquisition is not going to add to the value and good will of BlackBerry. China has it’s strategy based on commerce than on quality and reputation. BlackBerry should be able to tide over the crisis within Canada, so that it’s efficacy and name are retained.

中国人的收购无助于黑莓价值和信誉的增加。中国的战略基于商业考量,而非质量和声誉。黑莓应该有能力在加拿大渡过难关,以便保住效率和名声。

say what you say and be a sour grape and use Made in China Cell phone. you are welcome.

随你怎么说,一边说葡萄酸,一边用中国产手机。别客气

Third Artillery (China)
Lenovo moves a little bit too late, Huawei, ZTE and Xiaomi are already too big in androit Smart Phones, maybe Lenovo wants to get a bite from older generation users who loved the Blackberry vanity taste.
Agree (1)Disagree (0)Recommend (1)

联想行动有些迟缓,华为、中兴和小米在安卓智能机市场上已经是大咖,也许联想希望从喜欢黑莓虚荣味道的老一代用户中分一杯羹。

How is Blackberry such a popular and profitable smartphone company going bankrupt? And soon to by acquired by foreign companies. They were at the top competing against Apple and Samsung. I don’t think Canada cares about their own companies like letting China buy Nexen.

如此受欢迎和赚钱的智能机公司黑莓怎么会破产,且很快会被外国公司收购?他们在高端市场上与苹果和三星竞争。我认为加拿大不会在意,比如以前就允许中国收购石油公司尼尔森。

  1. 脑子进水了,花这么多钱,去买一个市场饱和的手机公司,如果联想用47亿去开发新领域,我想也会有所建树的吧,这种收购,感觉就是SB给外国人送钱去了

  2. 联想在美专利数量只是韩日公司的一个零头而已,收购黑莓就是冲着在美专利去的。为了市场为了不被产权起诉应该收购,三星吃的亏不够吸取教训吗(被罚10亿美金)?在股沟、苹果、三星的竞争下能赢机会不大,但想要成长壮大一定要去争取,甚至暗联华为中兴等。
