Despite rumors that wireless carriers aren’t currently interested by Dell’s handsets, Michael Dell still believes that there’s a future for Dell in smaller devices such as MIDs or cellphones.
“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.”
Dell was once a hot brand in the PDA market, but has since faded away. Its recent foray into the Netbook space, might be a launch pad for wireless devices, it thinks. [computerworld]
