Fujitsu And Toshiba Merge Cell Phone Businesses

Toshiba and Fujitsu have come to an agreement for a merger, combining their mobile operations, creating the second-largest Japanese phone maker, after Sharp. Such a move isn’t alien to them, as they merged their hard drive operations just over a year ago. From the deal, Fujitsu will apparently own 70-80 percent of the new company, which probably means that it’ll have quite a bit of power over the decision making. We’re looking forward to seeing what kind of cool mobile devices will come out of this partnership, though we suspect the majority of them will end up in Japan only.
