The smartphone industry is huge, but it is dominated by only a few of the top players - Dell, isn't one of them. Dell's head of Consumer Business, Jeff Clarke, has said that the company has no plans to re-enter the smartphone business anytime soon.
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.
