Clarke told Forbes during the week at the Dell World conference:

 

It needs a lot of investments to really be successful.

 

Clarke also said that Dell are finished with Android for now, and will be moving forward on the Windows 8 front. Clarke added:

 

It's a content play with Android. Amazon is selling books and Google is making it up with search. So far we couldn't find a way to build a business on Android.
