Panasonic's parent company, Matsushita, today announce they will cease production of GSM handsets. Instead the company will focus solely on 3G (UMTS) handsets. The company is having difficulty competing in the global GSM market, but is doing well with 3G handset sales - especially in Japan. They will shutter a number of plants around the world including a software development facility in the US as the company also intends to shift to a Linux based OS for all their phones.
