Sanyo is entering the final stages of talks to sell its mobile handset division to Kyocera. Last month Sanyo began discussions to sell off its loss-making handset division as part of a financial restructuring attempt, though it later announced the unit would be profitable by the end of the year.

Good, maybe Sanyo can teach Kyocera something

Then maybe Kyocera handsets won't be steaming piles of crap.
Kyocera will teach sanyo to make crappy phones no one likes.
