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.

The multiple USB ports can not only charge your phone but also let you access your videos, photos, and music on the seat's 13-inch full-HD touch screen, which is actually based on an Android tablet.
