Panasonic (PC +0.6%) is in talks with TSMC (TSM +0.8%) and HTC to sell its mobile phone business, Japan's Sankei Shimbun reports. TSMC seems an odd choice to buy the unit, given the world's biggest chip foundry hasn't shown any interest in being a phone manufacturer (either as an OEM or ODM). HTC is a little more plausible, but the company has its own problems to deal with. Panasonic, which last year took a $3B write-down partly tied to its phone ops, has already said it's exploring options for its TV and healthcare units.
