HONG KONG Feb 4 Lenovo Group Ltd
declined to comment on a weekend media report that the Chinese
personal computer maker was in talks with Japan's Sony Corp
about a possible joint venture to buy Sony's
loss-making Vaio PC business overseas.
"We do not comment on market rumour or speculation," Angela
Lee, director of global corporate communications at Lenovo,
wrote in an emailed response to Reuters on Tuesday.
Lenovo shares earlier tumbled as much as 15.7 percent to
HK$8.48 on the media report and broker downgrades after last
week's announcement that Lenovo would buy Google Inc's
Motorola handset division for $2.9 billion.
