LXer: Panasonic to kill GSM phones for 3G Linux handsets


anasonic Mobile Communications Co. is ending development of second-generation (2G) cell phones in the face of "severe global competition" to concentrate on development of third-generation (3G) Linux-based handsets, it said Friday.<br><br> The move makes Panasonic the first major cell phone maker to discontinue 2G handset operations. Sales of 3G handsets are climbing fast and becoming an increasingly important part of each handset maker's global sales. However, for many companies 2G sales still dominate. Panasonic, like many Japanese companies, was late to the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) market and so such sales are less important.
