Vaio To Merge With Toshiba And Fujitsu Creating A PC 'Giant'

You know how the Japanese like to combine smaller things into one large super powered thing? That's what is happening here. I guess that means Vaio merging with Toshiba and Fujitsu will make them the Voltron of the PC industry.

Vaio expects to strike an agreement to combine with Toshiba Corp.’s and Fujitsu Ltd.’s PC divisions by the end of March, said Hidemi Moue, chief executive officer of Japan Industrial Partners Inc., the buyout fund that now controls the former arm of Sony. Vaio expects to own the biggest stake in the merged company, which can help the trio save on research and development and scale production, he said.
