Dell To Launch Smartphones In China This Year
If a pair of apparently in-the-know analysts are to be trusted, Dell will launch smartphones (plural, as in multiple phones) in the Chinese market by the year's end, though actual details about the design and functionality remain scant. The company is forging ahead with this endeavor as it searches for an additional revenue source, and while starting in China is definitely unorthodox, it's better than just giving up entirely.
The report also didn't mention what carrier (or carriers) in China will be picking the phones up, though whispers have asserted that China Mobile could be in the running. Also of note, the United States and Europe are supposedly next in line to receive Dell's phones, though there's no mention of when that will be. Needless to say, there are still far more unknowns than anything else here, but at least we now have confirmation that Dell is moving forward with smartphone production. iPhone, beware?
