The mention of “innovation” suggests Bryant may become more involved with product development, which wouldn’t be a completely foreign concept for the five-time champion. Bryant is notoriously regarded as being very involved and meticulous with the design of his signature Nike shoe, which calls for a new model to be released annually.
When the Los Angeles Lakers began the 2013 playoffs without Bryant, who ruptured his Achilles, he gifted Lenovo laptops to the entire team to congratulate them on making the postseason. Computerworld.com reports Bryant recently extended his agreement with Lenovo to continue serving as the company’s official smart phone ambassador in China and Southeast Asia.
Bryant’s reference to #mwc2014 intimates more details may be revealed prior to the Mobile World Congress concluding on Feb. 27.
