Dell Smartphone Rumors Confirmed

Following many rumors and speculation Michael Dell, CEO of Dell Computer, has confirmed that Dell has been working on a smartphone or MID. According to reports from EWeek Dell confirmed these rumors during a presentation in Japan. This is reportedly the first official confirmation to come from either Michael Dell or Dell corporate confirming the company was in fact working on a smaller form factor device.

"It is true that we are exploring smaller-screen devices," said Michael Dell, during a presentation in Japan. “We don't have any announcements to share today, but stay tuned as when we have new news we will share that with you."

While exact details of a possible new device have not yet been released there have been reports that Dell is working on prototypes with both Microsoft Windows and Google Android operations systems.

Michael Dell said, "For the last three years, we have integrated 3G radios into our notebooks. 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.”
