TOKYO-Casio Computer Co. Ltd. and Hitachi Ltd. outlined the details of their mobile-phone joint venture, first announced in November. The companies said their new phone business will be called Casio Hitachi Mobile Communications Co. Ltd. and will develop, design and manufacture phones for Japanese and overseas users.
