Panasonic Officially Exits US Market
Apr 19, 2005, 1:42 PM by (staff)
Panasonic has officially closed its U.S. mobile phone operations. The company last sold a handset through a carrier almost two years ago with AT&T Wireless. After the merger, Cingular did not pick up any of Panasonic's new models. Since then Panasonic has sold a few new models through its US web store, however the sales apparently did not justify the continued effort of converting and testing handsets for the US market. Panasonic continues to manufacture and sell phones for Europe and Japan.
