Mita info[edit]

If you are interested, there was some Mita info at Mita. Perhaps it could be worked into this aritcle:

Mita machines are also sold as Copystar which before the company Kyocera bought the Mita Copystar company, the copiers and machines were sold as Royal Copystar, as well as Mita. Now machines that come out of the (Kyocera 8 million square foot) factory in China, the machines are made with both a Kyocera lable as well as a Copystar brand lable, this is a way for added distribution, as well as allowing customers loyal to copystar can still be able to buy copystar, also while it may not make sense to have 2 Kyocera dealers in 1 city competing with each other, is it however ok to have 1 copystar dealer competing with a Kyocera dealer. For example, in NYC World Trade Copiers [1] is the largest dealer for Copystar, and they sell Copystar products and compete directly with the Kyocera branch branch office in NYC.

Does Kyocera == Yashica[edit]

I am going through a bunch of old photography stuff with my mom and we are looking up a number of the old cameras that she has. One of them is a Yashica Electro 35 GS, and from searching wikipedia I have found a lot of red links to Yashica but not much else. The list of producs areticle that is being discussed as possibly needing to be merged here has a heading that implies that Kyocera might have sold some producs as Yashica. Should Yashica be created as a redirect here? On a side note I will be uploading some pictures of all the cameras tomorrow including this one. Dalf | Talk 03:08, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

Actually a number of articles mention the two together, and at least one refers to Kyocera as the mother company of Yashica. I suppose I will just put in a request for the article, or do some digging on google later. Dalf | Talk 03:10, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

Kyocera CDMA/PHS Phones[edit]

All of the phones currently listed in the article are not really Kyocera Corporate (KCJ) phones, but were/are designed by the US subsidiary Kyocera Wireless. Kyocera Corporate does make phones for the PHS networks in Japan, specifically for KDDI. The lists should reflect which division was responsible for which devices.

By the way, Kyocera was not know for high-end audio equipment. Its equipment was never high end. It was middle-of-the-road, high-expensive audio equipment known for being built with their ceramics. They died out quite soon after they began. They were overly expensive because of their use of ceramics not their quality parts.

Need photo[edit]

Chop per What Wikipedia is not[edit]

I have just done a rather severe content chop to this page. There is no reason to list every single product this company has ever made. WP:NOTDIRECTORY is clear in that Wikipedia is not a sales catalog. Beeblebrox (talk) 22:35, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

SVG image[edit]

There is a better SVG logo image here...is there any way we can use this instead? Is there a reason we can't? Thanks! Coolhandscot (talk) 04:52, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
