Sendo up for sale

Mobile phone maker Sendo is reportedly looking for a buyer. The company makes custom handsets to carrier specifications. The company was the center of much press attention several years ago when it was Microsoft's partner, working to bring the first Windows-powered handset to the market. The two companies split after Sendo accused Microsoft of giving away Sendo's technology to other companies. Sendo and Microsoft eventually settled their suit and Sendo went on to partner with Symbian, Microsoft's chief rival in the handset OS market. Many insiders claim the news is another sign of how growing competition is forcing many companies out of the handset market. Siemens recently sold its handset business after a period of losses.
