Fujitsu eyes entry into overseas cellphone markets
The Nikkei newspaper cited Fujitsu President Masami Yamamoto in an interview published Thursday as saying the company planned to launch smartphones in India and China — the world’s two largest mobile phone markets — by 2012. Fujitsu is aiming to boost its handset sales by 60 percent to around 10 million units in the financial year to March 2013, the Nikkei said.
Yamamoto was quoted as saying Fujitsu’s line-up would include models compatible with Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology, a next-generation network that promises to be several times faster than exisiting networks once it is rolled out. Fujitsu integrated its cellphone operations with Toshiba Corp’s in October, becoming the No. 2 player in the Japanese market and preparing itself for a push overseas. Via Reuters.
