Dell officially quits smartphone business

Dell has recently announced that it’s leaving the smartphone business for now and will shift their focus and attention in making competitive Windows tablets instead.



Dell’s head of consumer business, Jeff Clarke, recently confirmed at the Dell World conference that it is quitting the smartphone business, saying that “It needs a lot of investments to really be successful.” As Clarke sees it, “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.”

But even after throwing in the towel, Clarke hinted that company is still tinkering around with the Android OS. “It doesn’t mean we’re not looking at Android. You should come and see what’s in our labs,” says Clarke. Dell’s next strategy is focusing on producing Windows 8 and Windows RT tablets like the XPS10 and XPS12.
