Dell working on new Internet device

Taken from the CDFreaks.com front page:

A new report published in the Wall Street Journal reports PC maker Dell is working a new Google Android-based Internet device aimed at competing with the Apple iPod Touch device.

The pocket-sized device, which is in early prototype stage, is “slightly larger” than the iPod Touch, and could be released sometime during the second half of 2009. One of the unnamed sources the WSJ spoke with, however, said the project could be pushed back and later canceled at the company’s discretion.

I’m not sure if any company should try and develop a device designed specifically to “compete” with the iPod Touch, but there certainly is room for competitors in the market. Considering Dell’s reported project could go from possible release in the second half of 2009 all the way to non-existence, interested consumers certainly shouldn’t hold their breath on this news.

I wrote about it for CDFreaks, and you can find the rest of the article here.

Would be cool if finally released, but certainly don’t recommend consumers look forward to purchasing one for under the Christmas tree.

Enjoy! :slight_smile:
