Sony is all set to exit the PC market. While rumors have been baked fresh that Vaio stands sold off, Sony dropped in the official line for once and all. The computer-segment of the giants has been sold off to Japan Industrial Partners. This definitely points to the end of involvement that Sony had had in designs, plans or development of any PC product.
We now hear that the formal deal on this will be sealed next month. The company has not pinpointed any specific reasons for this decision. However, it did hint that immense changes in the way the comp market has shaped up could be a reason that triggered such a move.
With this, we expect the makers to focus on making more tabs and smartphones. On a sadder note, this also means that the company will initiate a job cut across its offices. With anticipation of net loss worth 110 billion yen, this is a decision that might indeed be justified.
