Dell drops out of smart phone market

Dell has stated that it has no plans to re-enter the smart phone market and that it is also dropping Android.

According to BGR, the vendor claimed that the smart phone market “requires a lot of investments to really be successful” and will instead focus on developing Windows 8 tablets.

“It’s a content play with Android. Amazon is selling books and Google is making it up with search. So far we couldn’t find a way to build a business on Android,” commented Dell’s head of consumer, Jeff Clarke.
