introduction of the Lenovo ThinkCentre M32 thin client, developed in collaboration with King of Prussia-based Devon IT and incorporating Devon IT thin client technology.
The new product and the relationship with Lenovo are significant for Devon IT, which needed to recover from the loss of its supplier arrangement with Dell after Dell acquired thin client leader Wyse Technology last year. Earlier this year Devon IT also established a similar relationship with #4 Acer.
Lenovo surpassed HP as the largest PC maker in number of shipments in the second quarter, both Gartner and IDC reported. Lenovo, which is based in China and acquired IBM's former PC business in 2005, has its US headquarters in the Raleigh-Durham area. Late last year it established an Enterprise Product Group to put greater emphasis on larger enterprises, where most thin client sales occur.
Devon IT has evolved into a company that primarily provides the technology (OS and network management software) for thin client devices rather than manufacturing them.
