SEATTLE (AP) - A newspaper report says Dell Inc. is working on a
"smart" phone for AT&T that runs Google Inc.'s Android phone
operating system.
The touch-screen phone could be ready early next year, The Wall
Street Journal reports. Representatives for Dell, AT&T and Google
all declined to comment.
Dell hired Ron Garriques, a Motorola cell-phone division
executive, to lead its consumer technology group in 2007. That
sparked persistent rumors that the PC maker was readying a smart
phone.
In August, Dell showed off what appeared to be a smart phone at
a Beijing event hosted by China's biggest cell phone carrier, China
Mobile. The Round Rock, Texas-based PC maker said it was a "proof
of concept mobile device prototype."
