Dell Launching a Phone?

With a failing PC business, Dell Inc. (DELL) now plans to enter the mobile phone market. Rumor has it that Dell will launch its first mobile phone — in the Chinese market exclusively — within the next two days.

Not much information is known about the phone, either on the hardware or the software front, but according to some sources, it will be like an iPhone with a large touch-screen and without a physical keyboard.

The phone is anticipated to join with either China Mobile (CHA) or China Unicom (CHU) to be its carrier partner. However, Dell has refrained from commenting so far, but it expects the offering to be part of its long-term consumer strategy.

Dell has struggled to keep pace with the consumer market due to intense competitive pressure. If Dell launches the phone, it will have to face stiff competition from Apple (AAPL) and Research in Motion (RIMM).
