Another one bites the dust in the world of smartphones – you can add Dell’s name to the list of hardware manufacturers that decided to stop rolling out a particular device simply because it does not believe in the operating system any more. Dell from Texas might not have been an important part of the Windows Phone ecosystem, but that does not mean it remains antagonistic against Microsoft’s efforts.
The Dell Venue Pro could have played part of its role in a negative public perception of Dell’s hardware on the Windows Phone 7 from – said smartphone was already flooded with issues right from the get go, so perhaps that is why the Dell Venue Pro never won the hearts of users then.
Another reason as to why Dell decided to pull out from the Windows Phone 7 game was because it was never a Mango hardware partner to begin with, but I don’t think that Dell’s efforts on the Windows Phone 7 front will be missed. I’m quite sure that HTC, LG and Samsung (and hopefully, Nokia in due time) ought to do pretty well by themselves as an alternative to Android and iOS.
