Dell: We are still committed to Android!

Dell recently discontinued the Streak 7 Tablet PC model from their online store.

The company has also not launched any new device based on the Android platform for a while now.

Dell: We are still committed to Android!

And it is not clear if they are going to launch an updated edition of Streak in the market in the coming months.

These led to reports in the market that the company is discarding Android as a mobile platform. Analysts believed that Dell might have switched to Windows Phone for their phones in the US market and could be waiting for Windows 8 for their future Tablet PC models.

Dell has refuted these reports now. The company said in a statement:

Dell remains committed to the mobility market and continues to sell products here and in other parts of the world. Streak 7 delivered a unique experience for customers who wanted a larger screen-size yet the freedom of staying connected to their personal and professional content while on the-go. It continues to be available in many markets through retail, distributors and carrier partners such as Optus in Australia. A 10-inch version of the tablet, Streak 10 Pro, is currently offered in China, offering the ultimate digital divide between work and life. The Venue and Venue Pro devices, as well, continue to earn accolades for performance, design and functionality around the world. We also recently launched the Latitude ST, a 10-inch Windows 7-based touch-screen tablet designed for vertical markets such as education, finance and healthcare in November of this year. We remain committed to expanding our reach beyond PCs with a targeted set of open, standards-based mobility solutions and services designed for commercial and mobile professional customers.
