Fujitsu/Sagem: grab your partners

The deal will allow the two companies to cut the cost of 3G development. But while both firms will certainly benefit, the advantages will be short lived as other manufacturers follow suit. Consolidation in this industry seems inevitable and companies trying to 'go it alone' will find the market an increasingly difficult place to survive.

Nintendo: GameCube aims to be the May Queen

The GameCube will be the last next-generation console to launch in Europe, following March's Xbox launch and the PS2 launch in 2000.

MLHSBC: dead man walking

The mass affluent service, launched in a blaze of publicity and hype a year ago, appears to be on its last legs. It has consistently failed to gain sufficient customers to meet its ambitious targets.
