Lenovo Group Ltd, China's largest PC maker, has taken on 40 former employees of rival Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc at its new Nanjing smartphone research and development center, and expects to take on double that number of former Motorola workers in the next six months.

Chen Wenhui vice-president of Lenovo and general manager of phone research and development, said the new Lenovo center will be the Chinese company's fourth R&D center after Beijing, Shanghai and Xiamen. The original plan was to build the fourth center in Wuhan, Hubei province.

"But once we knew Motorola was going to lay off employees, we went to Nanjing immediately," Chen said.
