[The Chosun Ilbo, November 12 2007] Samsung Quits Japan's Consumer Electronics Market

Samsung Electronics has decided to stop selling consumer electronics in Japan with the exception of monitors, the company said Friday.

The company sold MP3 players, LCD TVs and DVD players through websites and some retailers in Japan but sales have been lackluster.

Samsung Electronics said consumer electronics account for around just one percent of its total sales in Japan, which lean heavily towards semiconductors and LCD panels.
