Lenovo partners with Axiom Telecom to distribute smartphone range in UAE
  • Axiom Telecom outlets to stock Lenovo's latest smartphones, including flagship K900
  • Axiom Telecom also set to distribute Lenovo smartphones to independent retailers
  • Strategic partnership key to Lenovo's ambition of becoming one of UAE's top five smartphone vendors.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 30 June, 2013: Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY), the world's second largest PC company, today signed a strategic partnership with Axiom Telecom, the UAE's largest mobile retailer and distributor.

The deal will give Lenovo a powerful platform to significantly increase its share of the UAE's burgeoning smartphone market. In particular, it will enable Axiom Telecom customers across the country to get their hands on the latest range of Lenovo smartphones such as the much sought-after K900. Axiom Telecom will also distribute Lenovo smartphones to independent retailers.

Lenovo has strong global ambitions, having already solidified its position among the top five smartphone vendors in China, the world's largest smartphone market, and has identified the UAE as central to its future growth. According to research firm Canalys, the UAE will sell 6.75 million smartphones this year and 10.4 million by 2016.

Faisal Al Bannai, CEO, Axiom Telecom said:

“Lenovo is utterly committed to smartphone innovation and giving the consumer an immersive, cutting-edge smartphone experience. With our market expertise, retail reach and ability to offer a peerless, value-added in-store experience, we are delighted to help Lenovo introduce a stellar line-up of products to their largest and most influential audience yet. As ever, Axiom is determined to do everything possible to offer customers the best and widest range of choice when it comes to smartphones.” 

Under the agreement, Axiom Telecom will accommodate dedicated Lenovo sections in its flagship stores across the UAE. This will include product demonstration hubs manned by some of the mobility retail industry's most knowledgeable staff.

In addition, Lenovo and Axiom Telecom will work closely together on co-marketing activities to help take Lenovo smartphones to the next level across the UAE. 

Oliver Ebel, Vice President and General Manager, Lenovo Middle East and Africa, said: “Our goal is to be one of the top five smartphone vendors in the UAE in the coming period and we firmly believe our partnership with Axiom can help us achieve that. We are excited to witness the UAE's reaction to our innovative range of smartphones. Innovation is in Lenovo's DNA; our team strives to deliver ground-breaking devices without compromising on design.”

“The introduction of our smartphones in the UAE complements our strategy to become the worldwide leader in PC+. UAE is a strategic market for Lenovo where we are currently the second largest PC vendor with 14.5% PC market share,” Ebel concluded.
