NEC, Casio and Hitachi today announced an agreement to integrate their mobile terminal businesses in April 2010 through the establishment of a joint venture company. The new company will boast a competitive portfolio of products that draws strength from the complete integration of business functions between NEC’s Mobile Terminal Operations Unit and CHMC, as well as merges the advanced technologies and product development experience of each company.


NEC, Casio and Hitachi will integrate their mobile terminal business in order to strengthen both domestic and international business while increasing competitive strength and capitalizing on each company’s brand recognition through (1) achieving synergies in a variety of fields, including sales expansion, procurement and customer service, and (2) reinforcing product development by unifying technological assets, know-how and resources.
