Dell quits global smartphone business


In an entirely unsurprising move, Dell has announced that is it is quitting the Android smartphone business. Readers may remember that the US computer company tried its hand at making Android powered hybrid phablets in the past years, the most notable of which is their Streak series of devices. Dell is instead concentrating on Windows 8 devices, most notably Windows 8 tablet devices and has said that it’ll be one of their core competencies as far as their mobile strategy is concerned. If you’re one of the few people who liked the Dell Streak, you’ll also be sad to know that the company isn’t looking to jump back into making Android devices anytime soon, with  Jeff Clarke, the head of Dell’s consumer business saying that “it needs a lot of investments to really be successful”.
