According to a recent report, Dell's anticipated effort to jump the smartphone market was unavailing so far. Rumors flew through the web for some time now saying that Dell might work on Windows Mobile smartphones and as it turned out, it's true - Dell was/is working on smartphones but is suffering from "a lack of interest" among cellular carriers (most likely U.S. American carriers), according to a research note published on Friday. According to this report, Dell was showing-off some Windows Mobile and Android based smartphones but have so far failed to distinguish themselves from a growing field of competitors.

Kaufman Bros. analyst Shaw Wu wrote: "From our conversations with supply chain and industry sources, it appears that it ultimately came down to lack of carrier interest," and continues that "Dell has not abandoned its effort to release a mobile device, though it has 'gone back to the drawing board' to design a more distinct model, which may involve making related acquisitions."

At this point it's uncertain if and when Dell will release its first smartphone and if it will either run Windows Mobile or Android or both. However, after Dell left the Pocket PC business some years ago, it lost a lot of credibility.

Cheers ~ Arne
