Rumors are circulating that Dell and Google will use the Android platform to launch a new, Dell-branded cellphone at the 3GSM conference in Barcelona next month. The handset, which would mark Dell’s return to the mobile device market after they ceased creating PDAs, would leverage Google’s online application suite in what would likely be a cost-effective device.
“It makes sense for Dell to have a high-profile entry back into the market because its last effort with PDAs pretty much flopped” Neil Mawston, Director of wireless device strategies, Strategy Analytics
Google, however, are denying any involvement with Dell. That hasn’t stopped many from proclaiming the rumored handset as a potential “iPhone killer”.
