A Dell phone?
Dell tried a phone several years ago, and it didn't work out too well. They also had music players, Tvs and cameras, all of which failed. They may be gaining small PC marketshare gains, but at what cost? We no longer know.

DELL-EMC MERGER AKWARD FOR ALL
WOW. THE DELL DEAL OR THE DEAL OF THE CENTUARY HAS GOTTEN THE FOCUS ON THE WORLD. STUNNING COUP FOR DELL.CONGRATS. THE FALL OUT HOWEVER IS GOING TO BE LARGE. FIRSTLY VMWARE IS GOING TO FIND MORE COMPETITION AS OEMS AND ISVS GO ON A MORE SILOED PATH WITH VIRTUALIZATION. THEY WILL NOT WANT TO SUBSIDIZE DELL NO MATTER WHAT DELL AND EMC STATE. SECONDLY WITH DELL BECOMING A MORE VERTICAL COMPANY WHILE OTHER HAVE BROKE UP INTO TWO OR THREE COMPANIES FOR CLIENT, SERVER AND STORAGE WATCH FOR MORE OEM/ISV PARTNERING AROUND DELL. AKIN TO WHAT HAPPENED TO IBM FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS. 

LASTLY STORAGE WILL RESHAPE THE COMPUTE LANDSCAPE AND THE CPU LANDSCAPE. WATCH FOR COMBINED CORES FROM ARM TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN VS ALL INTEL..
