Lenovo to keep ThinkPad, Lenovo brands
According to this report
on DigiTimes, Lenovo plans to continue selling notebooks under its own name in conjunction with the ThinkPad brand. Arimasa Naitoh, an ex-IBM employee who has been overseeing ThinkPad development since 1991, says the Lenovo and ThinkPad brands will complement each other to meet the needs of different market segments. Naitoh says the ThinkPad and Lenovo design teams will remain isolated, although he will now personally supervise the development of Lenovo notebooks as well.
