A report from PC World suggests Dell may kill its smartphone line. According to PC World, Dell’slast remaining phones, the Windows Phone-powered Venue and the Venue Pro, will no longer be sold in the US. A few remaining models will continue to be sold in India, China, Japan and South Korea.
An unamed Dell spokesman said that it’s time for Dell to get out of the smartphone business.” Mobility products have shorter life cycles than laptops and desktops,” he said.
The spokesman also said Dell plans to introduce more mobile products later this year in the US, but wouldn’t confirm whether these devices will include smartphones. This report doesn’t come as a big surprise, Dell has been on the sidelines of the smartphone market for a long time.
