Lenovo is on a roll and welcomes the new year with the opening of another Lenovo Mobile Exclusive Store (LMES) in the country in Cebu. Lenovo’s LMES and Lenovo Concept Store Ayala Center Cebu is the sixth one to open in a short span of three months since the company started inaugurating concept stores solely dedicated to smartphones and tablets.
Located at Level 3 of the Ayala Center in Cebu City, Lenovo’s newest LMES is the second shop outside Metro Manila (the first is in Gaisano Mall, Davao), and is owned/managed by Easyline Communication Trading Corp.
It follows the opening of the Glorietta 3 Makati and SM City Taytay store launches and attests to Lenovo’s aggressive pursuit of new high-growth opportunities in the smartphone market.
According to Michael Ngan, Country General Manager of Lenovo Philippines, “Lenovo is proud that we have become the clear global leader in PCs. And even as we have strengthened our PC leadership position, we have also embraced a major shift in the marketplace. Lenovo is leading the way in the PC+ era. Not only are we number 1 in PCs, but now we are number 2 in the PC + tablet category, and number 3 in Smart Connected Devices (PCs, tablets and smartphones) globally. We intend to build on our PC+ strategy and to sustain our growth momentum in the smart connected devices segment by strengthening our retail presence for mobile with the opening of more Lenovo Exclusive Mobile Stores across the archipelago.”
Based on GfK’s latest data, the Philippines continues to report exponential three-fold growth of 326 percent in smartphone volume sales, making it the country with the highest jump in smartphone market share within a year, from 9 to 24 percent and IDC Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker states that tablet shipments to the Philippines grew 54.4% in Q2 this year.
The Lenovo Mobile Exclusive Store in Ayala Center Cebu, like the five other mobile concept stores, offers smartphone products such as the Lenovo A series (A369i, A850, A269i and A516) and the recently launched premium smartphone Lenovo Vibe X, as well as tablets including the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 and Yoga Tablet 10.
