Dell Confirms Entrance Into Smartphone Arena

with 3 comments


Can Dell become a player in the smartphone arena?

Last Friday Dell confirmed plans to enter the smartphone arena and announced partnerships with two of the world’s largest mobile operators.

Dell plans on distributing its Mini 3 smartphone initially in only China and Brazil through China Mobile and Claro, respectively.  The phones where designed around Google’s Android platform.

“Our entry into the smart phone category is a logical extension of Dell’s consumer product evolution over the past two years,” said Ron Garriques, President, Dell Global Consumer Group. “We are developing smaller and smarter mobile products that enable our customers to take their internet experience out of the home and do the things they want to do whenever and wherever they want.“

Details on the phone models will be announced in late November when the devices become available in the stores.

There is no mention on when the phones will be available in other countries including the United States.  However it makes perfect sense to test the waters in less competitive markets.
