Dell Android MID/smartphone prototypes spotted?

Like Sony's PSP phone rumors, talk of a new Dell smartphone refuses to die.  After the leaked image earlier this month, now the Wall Street Journal is tenuously suggesting that Dell have been experimenting with Android-based prototypes.  Two people who have seen the prototypes have described them as "slightly larger than Apple's iPod touch"; however another person has suggested both that Dell may begin shipping the device later in 2009 or "the plan could be delayed or scrapped entirely."

Nadella: Windows 10 embraces all, yes, even phones

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella's announcement last week didn't exactly shake up the mobile industry as much as it shook confidence in its mobile, particularly smartphone, strategy or lack thereof. A lot of questions were raised and theories cooked up. Since then, Microsoft has reiterated in different corners that it is still committed to smartphones. How exactly, it hasn't completely explained. ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley was able to get some alone time with Nadella after he delivered his Worldwide Partners Conference keynote and asked the hard questions that many of us probably want to ask.

Microsoft’s IFA Keynote curiously leaves out smartphones

Microsoft’s IFA Keynote curiously leaves out smartphones

Microsoft has definitely been sending mixed, not to mention confusing, signals about smartphones lately. Even before Windows 10 Mobile or even Windows 10 itself hits the streets, Microsoft has already put its own smartphone business on notice.

But while the company will be one of those to deliver a keynote there, the announcement ominously makes no mention of smartphones, hinting, at the very least, that we won't see one in September.

Like many things in life, things aren't as clear cut as we would like, and Microsoft's struggle with mobile is far from over.

Nadella: Microsoft “committed” to making phones

Satya Nadella insists Microsoft is still "committed" to making its own smartphones, the CEO arguing today's massive $7.6bn write-off is refocusing not abandonment. The company announced this morning it would cut 7,800 jobs, predominantly from its phone business, as well as write-off what it spent on acquiring Nokia. "I don’t take changes in plans like these lightly," Nadella wrote in an email to all employees, "given that they affect the lives of people who have made an impact at Microsoft."
