Dell consulting networks over mobile phone plans

Dell’s plans to enter the smartphone market are continuing apace, a representative for the computing giant has confirmed.

Addressing delegates at a business conference, Roland Garriques, president of the company’s consumer division, told attendees that Dell is consulting with mobile phone networks to “see what their needs are”.

Mr Garriques did not name the phone carriers who are involved and only revealed that they were the “top three or four” in the industry.

He added: "What operators want from us is a solution that's about supporting their technology...and their value-added services.”

Dell first announced its intention to move beyond its core home computer market and into the phone sector in March this year.

In a speech given at the time by chief executive officer Michael Dell at a conference in Tokyo, it was claimed the company would have a critical advantage over competitors thanks to its expertise with 3G.
