Sanyo Shopping Handset Operations
Aug 13, 2007, 12:19 PM by (staff)
Sanyo is reportedly in talks to sell off its handset business. Despite mild success in Japan and the US, handsets are still a loss maker for Sanyo. They are looking at other Japanese handset manufacturers as potential buyers - most likely Sharp and Kyocera. Sanyo previously tried to split off its handset unit into a joint venture with Nokia's CDMA division, however that deal failed shortly after it was announced leaving Sanyo with the money-losing business.

A Move to Verizon on the Horizon?
And believe me, I'm not rooting for this (Sanyo moving to Verizon), but Sanyo reminds me a lot of Sony Ericsson. They make great handsets, get great customer feedback, but some how always seem to come up short in the sales department. What Sanyo needs is a decent company with good customers behind it (i.e. not Sprint).
Good Luck (R.I.P. Sanyo)...
It would make sooooo much sense for Sanyo just to move over and start making handsets for Verizon. I'm sure verizon customers are clamoring for something outside of the Bermuda triangle of Motorola, Samsung & LG.
Well I really liked the M1 (not the others)
But there phones just started getting better...
Sanyo handsets are great. The designs aren't the prettiest, but they work great and they can take a decent beating. It makes me sad to see them struggle when other companies with inferior products are prospering with just brute force (*c...
I'm with AT&T myself, but I do believe that T-Mobile will pull past, Sprint in the next year, and I think the margin between #3 T Mobile, and #4 Sprint will become an increasingly bigge...
How the mighty have fallen
But for the past couple years, Sanyo hasn't introduced anything innovative, and I swear everything's looked the same for quite some time.
Oh well...things change.
sanyo is good jd power
Thas' a damn shame...
They had a slight Keitai look and feel to them. What with the antenna placed on the left instead of the right, and the larger size (5300) of the phones all together.
It all went down hill after that...
American phones seem to embrace a sort of small form factor. If you look at most of the Japanese cell phones, those things a huge! The newest ones have a minimum of a 2.4in screen and then go from there.
I think Sanyo started off like that in the beginning taking cues from what was going on in Japan, and then implementing it on there first borns.
Oh well... I liked Sanyo, they should of branc...
