Sharp To Stop Manufacturing PCs

It’s not a secret that the computing industry is a cut-throat one and word is going around that Sharp will no longer sell and manufacture PCs, including notebooks and desktops. It wasn’t immediately clear when the company will cease PC production, but it was stressed that it will be done so very shortly. The company is planning to give up selling PCs in Japan in order to fully concentrate on its effort on its newly developed eBook technology with the Galapagos tablet slated to arrive in Japan this December. Sharp will continue to provide ultra compact devices such as its Netwalker series and reminds us that this is just a strategic move at the moment and the company might come back into the PC market in the future.
