For those hoping for a sequel to the Dell Venue Pro Windows Phone, the stars don't seem to be in your favor. In a recent interview with Forbes, Michael Dell re-affirmed his companies position discontinue smartphone sales and development.
But what would it take to get Dell back into the smartphone business? When asked, Dell's response was,
"If the market changes so that a vendor like Dell can compete with smartphones more successfully we’ll likely reenter but, until then, our focus is going to be on managing, securing, and keeping these devices fed."
While conditions may develop to see Dell re-enter the smartphone market, there's no telling what OS they would choose. On the plus side, Dell thinks Windows 8 is exciting and we can expect to see a lot of activity when Windows 8 becomes available.
Seeing that Dell is enthusiastic about Windows 8, could we eventually see a Windows Phone 8 device from Dell? Or should Dell concentrate on computers and tables, leaving the Windows Phones to others?
