The 35 year history of Toshiba’s notebook officially came to an end, and sharp took over

Toshiba, with a 35 year history of notebook manufacturing, launched the world’s first real notebook computer, the t1100, in 1985. At that time, the notebook weighed only 2.7 kg, which was extremely light in those days. However, Toshiba recently transferred its 19.9% stake in DYNABOOK Inc. to sharp, which means sharp owns all the shares in the company. In fact, sharp, which was reinvested by Hon Hai, acquired most of the shares of Toshiba’s PC business for about 4 billion yen in 2018, and today it is a complete and complete acquisition of all shares in the business. As a result, Toshiba has sold the entire notebook business to sharp, making DYNABOOK a wholly-owned subsidiary of sharp. Although DYNABOOK is mainly based on pen phones, it is not enough for the follow-up. The parent company of sharp, Hon Hai, will be responsible for the product assembly business under the brand, and it will not only be limited to notebook products. In the future, it plans to expand its product portfolio, such as servers, desktop computers and other products. Counterpoint announced top 5 best selling models: domestic iPhone 11 tops the list
