Nikkei reports Sharp will pull out of the PC market as it's becoming harder to make a profit from stand-alone products:
The company will instead focus on marketing its Galapagos tablet devices coming out in December, along with providing content such as e-books, music and video for these products.
Sharp made its mark in the PC business by tapping proprietary technologies for LCDs and chips, as well as in other areas. In the 1990s, it developed what was then the world's smallest and lightest notebook PC equipped with both an internal hard drive and a floppy disk drive.

Who is leaving? Oh Sharp! Have you ever seen one of their PC's at Fry's or Best Buy? Guess not...
Hard to leave a market you aren't in...
