Dell quits the Android tablet market

Posted by

It is no doubt that stiff-necked competition lies among Android manufacturers, especially among brands. We have seen some fighting and staying afloat, while some others have given up and packed up shop. Many have fallen by the way side, and Dell just joined them.


Last year, the company launched the Venue 8 tablet, but it seems sales haven’t gone as expected. So they have decided to kill it off in favor of other gadgets like laptops and the 2-in-1 PC’s.

The slate tablet market is over-saturated and is experiencing declining demand from consumers, so we’ve decided to discontinue the Android-based Venue tablet line…For customers who own Android-based Venue products, Dell will continue to support currently active warranty and service contracts until they expire, but we will not be pushing out future OS upgrades.

In a blog post, Kirk Schell, VP, Commercial Client solutions at Dell explained why 2-in-1 PC’s is the future (for them). With the decline of tablet sales worldwide, it is imperative that they dropped it for other venture that will keep them profitable. Bye bye to the Dell Venue.
