Dell axes their Windows Phone plans
The Dell Wrigley is the codename for what appeared to be a revamped version of the QWERTY packing Dell Venue Pro. It appeared in a Dell roadmap back in February but we hadn’t really learned anything else about it since. There were a couple other devices also featured in that roadmap, the Hancock and the Millenium, but they are both rumored to be running on Android 4.0 and not Windows.
According to a “higher up” source at Dell, they don’t plan to offer Windows Phone devices this year or next. If they decide to get back into the Windows Phone market, which at this time seems to be a big if, we may not see another Windows device from Dell until 2013. Existing Dell devices, such as the Venue Pro, will be getting their share of Mango in soon, just as every other existing Windows device has.
It looks like Dell is staying in the cell phone market however as they haven’t announced any plans to axe their future plans with Android. Their decision to pull out of the Windows Phone market isn’t yet official so keep your eyes and ears open for an announcement that could from Dell in the very near future.
