A Samsung Electronics spokeswoman announced that the company has stopped sales of consumer electronics in Japan, according to a report from AFP.

The spokeswoman disclosed that by end-October, the South Korean company has ceased taking new orders via the Internet from retail customers for products such as flat TVs. Sales at retail shops had already stopped last year due to tough market competition against homegrown rivals. She added that the company will instead concentrate its development resources in North America, Europe and emerging countries such as Brazil.
