Fujitsu to spin off its PC and smartphone units

Posted on Tuesday, Dec 29 2015 @ 12:53 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Earlier this month a rumor made the rounds about a potential merger of the PC divisions of Toshiba, Fujitsu and Sony spin-off VAIO. Now we have a bit more information as Fujitsu announced it's spinning off its computer and mobile divisions. The Verge writes the Japanese firm will create two new companies: Fujitsu Client Computing Limited will get Fujitsu's desktop PC and laptop divisions, while Fujitsu Connected Technologies will contain the mobile phone division.
"With the ongoing commoditization of ubiquitous products, mainly of PCs and smartphones, it has become increasingly difficult to achieve differentiation, and competition with emerging global vendors has intensified," Fujitsu writes, explaining the spinoffs.
The spin-off is expected to be finalized by February 1st, 2016, and for the time being, Fuitsu will continue to own both companies.
