Panasonic closes U.S. mobile phone operations

Panasonic Corporation of North America has officially closed down its U.S. mobile phone operations due to lack of support from carrier partners. The last handset sold through a carrier (AT&T Wireless) in the United States was GU87 camera phone, almost two years ago. After failing to find new carrier partnerships, Panasonic has been selling phones on its Web site, but it seems not to justify the efforts of testing handsets for the US market. Now Panasonic Corporation will focus its attention on manufacturing mobile phones for Europe and Japan.
