DELL-Venue-10-7000-15When you think of Android tablets, chances are you might be thinking of brands like Samsung or maybe even Google’s Nexus lineup. While Dell has created Android tablets before, it seems that the company has decided that moving forward, they will no longer create Android tablets. Instead the company will be focusing on Windows-based 2-in-1 devices.

This is according to a statement that a Dell spokesman released to PC World. “The slate tablet market is over-saturated and is experiencing declining demand from consumers, so we’ve decided to discontinue the Android-based Venue tablet line. We are seeing 2-in-1s rising in popularity since they provide a more optimal blend of PC capabilities with tablet mobility. This is especially true in the commercial space.”

As for users who have already bought Dell Android tablets, don’t worry as the company will not be abandoning you guys. The spokesman adds that they will continue to support these devices until warranty and service contracts expire. “For customers who own Android-based Venue products, Dell will continue to support currently active warranty and service contracts until they expire, but we will not be pushing out future OS upgrades.”

That being said, the semi-good news is that Dell isn’t completely closing the door on Android tablets forever. The company could possibly revisit them one day, which we guess will depend on the market and demand, but for now you probably should look elsewhere.
