The US smartphone market might have been a little too much for rookie smartphone maker Dell, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t viable markets for Dell’s smartphone offerings. After being shunned by US wireless carriers for its lackluster smartphone lineup that failed to differentiate itself from the market, Dell is now reportedly in talks to bring their smartphones to China Mobile.
Dell is said to be working to reach a deal with China’s single-largest wireless carrier, and hopes to have one or two of its smartphones distributed to China by year’s end. According to Zhang Jun, an analyst at Wedge MKI, a “flashy Dell addition” would help boost China Mobile’s otherwise staid offerings – and might help spur subscribers’ adoption of China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA 3G services.
You know what they say, one country’s boring and un-differentiated smartphone is another’s “flashy” handset.
