Dell CEO Michael Dell revealed that the computer manufacturers are going to be making an impact on the already busy tablet market in 2011, releasing a number of devices to join the incoming 7-inch Dell Streak.
Speaking at an event in Hong Kong yesterday, Dell wasn’t going to let that be the only thing he talks about, instead he rather cheekily brought up the competing operating systems that Dell are making devices for, saying that Windows Phone 7 handsets have been easier to develop and build than their Android handsets.
This sort of statement for the Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system is sure to compliment the praise Microsoft has already been receiving from consumers since it’s release, and with device manufacturers showing such support, it is likely Windows Phone 7 is going to become more and more of a force to be reckoned with in the near future.
Dell is on track to release two new smartphones which will be almost identical bar their operating systems with the Thunder (powered by Android) and the Venue Pro (which is running Windows Phone 7). Google’s Android is one of the top mobile OS’s right now, but whether it can take on Microsoft could be seen soon with these devices. At least we know who Dell is backing when it comes to the preferred operating system right now.
