Sharp is officially out of the PC business The Japanese Nikkei has reported today that Sharp is officially out of the PC business, pulling the plug on their personal computing operations.
Sharp has not put out a new PC in the last year.

Additionally, the report says that Sharp will now re-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 is a big player in the HDTV, LED, LCD and solar markets.

Many major computer makers have shifted their focus away from PCs towards tablets and other mobile devices.

They made computers for sale in Japan and probably never marketed it outside Japan.

I know that a few of their desktops made it to NA back in the late 1980's and a few laptops made it over in the early 1990's. Can't say I have seen anything from them this century...
