Sharp Drops After Saying Material Doubt on Survival - Bloomberg
SHARP and PANASONIC likely next candidates to fail (bankruptcy, reorganisation, splitting of assets). Their demise is partly to contribute not being able to stay in touch of technology trends. It is a dead end street to compete simply by price where ur products are just a commodity.

Same with Motorola and their cell phone business.
Same with Nokia and their cell phone business.
