Dell exits Android market

Dell has noticed that the Android tablet market is a tough place to compete and has now announced that they will no longer be producing Android tablets but rather focusing on making Windows 2-in-1 tablet products. Dell has never been a big player in the Android market so a move like this is probably actually quite smart thanks to everyone and their dog building Android tablets. ArsTechnica has more on this story.

There's a lot of competition and not a lot of profit in the Android ecosystem, so it's not exactly surprising to hear that Dell plans to exit the Android business in order to focus on its Windows PCs and convertibles. According to The Verge, the company will continue to honor warranties and service contracts for Venue Android tablets, but it will no longer sell or develop new hardware and will stop releasing software updates for current devices.
