Dell’s recent announcement that it’s halting smartphone sales in the U.S. made us think back on all of the company’s ambitious but failed products. Though the manufacturer excels in traditional laptop and desktop sales, it continuously struggles to perform as well in other segments like mobile. But hey, you can’t fault America’s second-largest PC vendor for trying.
Dell recently announced that it's halting production on its smartphones in the U.S. to focus more on "emerging markets and higher-margin products." The desktop and laptop company must have realized that its Venue models of Windows Phones, though well made, weren't selling. Dell's Smartphones will still be available in India, South Korea, Japan, China and several other countries.
The company says it will push out mobile products later this year, although details are vague on what those products may be.We suspect that they may just go with Windows 8 tablets.
