In October Fujitsu revealed it was in discussion with Lenovo over “various possibilities” for its PC business, declaring that many “strategic cooperation” options were being explored.
Now Fujitsu president Tatsuya Tanaka has confirmed at a press conference that talks are in an “advanced stage”.
However, he did not say when he expected something tangible to be announced.
All he said were the pair were creating synergies, which is not the sort of thing you want your rivals or your wives to see.
He expected all this synergy making to be “wrapped” soon which will be no doubt a great relief.
Fujitsu separated its PC business earlier last year, spinning it out into Fujitsu Client Computing.
Lenovo wants to take on HP for top spot in the PC market, all the while shipment volumes have been shrinking.
Huawei recently announced its entrance to the market, looking to replicate the success it has seen in the tablet market where its shipment figures have continued to grow.
