A day after securing control of the company he founded, Michael Dell has ruled out an attempt by the firm to develop a range of smartphones.
Speaking to CNBC, Michael Dell said that the company would instead maintain a position as a re-seller of phones made by other companies, adding that they will “participate in tablets and all sorts of client devices.”
The announcement is not a huge surprise though, as the company’s head of consumer business, Jeff Clarke said pretty much the same thing at a conference last December.
And when you think about it, we’re not sure Dell would be able to compete in today’s market. It could get expertise by acquiring a smaller company but that hasn’t worked for other players (think: HP). That said we’re not sure whether to be said about this or not. It’s not like Dell phones were ever that popular… What do you say?
