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 Versio was a much worse phone. I felt really bad selling it to customers. But if they get a "free" phone than that's their problem. My roommate had the Allure. I know he liked his a lot.

Not a big shock

they really didnt have a big market on the cell phones in the US. the only phone that looked cool was the mini phones, but charged too much $$$$ for them
