Johnson Jia, Lenovo’s senior vice president, PC & Smart Device Business Group said,

“Our goal has never been to simply build smart home devices for the sake of advancing technology alone”. “In the same way a person’s IQ is measured by applied knowledge, we believe products are ‘smart’ to the degree they’re actually understood and applied to daily life by their users.”

Steve Rabuchin, vice president, Amazon Alexa said,

“We’re excited to work with an innovative company such as Lenovo to bring the Lenovo Smart Assistant with Alexa to customers this spring”. “At Amazon, we work hard to provide customers with as much choice as possible—and Lenovo’s new Smart Assistant speaker does just that through leveraging the power of Alexa Voice Services (AVS). We can’t wait for customers to try this out later this year.”
