DELL is comming back in SMARTPhones

Long after the almost obsolate offering of Axim series mobile phones, DELL's CEO Mr.Micheal Dell Gave the stongest hint to-date  about a mobile internet device or smartphone at a speech in Tokyo, reported by

Previous Axim series was appreciated for low-cost windows mobile expereience, this time the guesses are running for Android powered mobile. Even there are some speculations about the Alineware powered design of the phone as demonstrated by this concept sketch, but there is no official announcement from DELL company.

Dell, who is CEO of the company that bears his name, said he is watching the development of ecosystems that have built up around small mobile devices. “For the last three years we have integrated 3G radios into our notebooks,” said Dell. “We already have agreements with many mobile carriers around netbook devices so it wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect that we would have smaller mobile Internet devices or smartphones in the future.” His comments came as rumors swirl about prototypes of a device being shopped around U.S. wireless carriers and manufacturing orders for smartphones placed with a Taiwanese contract manufacturer.

Dell didn’t offer any additional information about the company’s possible moves in the space and declined to comment on a report in Tuesday’s Commercial Times newspaper in Taiwan that Hon Hai Precision Industry, which is the world’s largest contract manufacturer of electronics, had received an order from the company to make smartphones. This week some analysts have also been publicly contemplating an acquisition of Palm by Dell as a fast-track into the phone and mobile device market. Dell said buying other companies remains an option for expansion into the smartphone market but that its acquisitions focus is elsewhere at present.
