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.

Panasonic continues to manufacture and sell phones for Europe and Japan.
