According to the Wall Street Journal, the remainder of the company’s consumer-focused lines have been sold to Funai Electric of Japan.
Philips will focus on medical equipment and lighting, as it hs recently made up the majority of the company’s business. So if there’s a Philips iPad-compatible alarm clock that you’ve had your eye on, now is the time to pick it up.
