Dell to Enter Smartphone Fray?

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Dell is planning to release two new SMARTPHONES at the upcoming Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona.
 
To say it's a tall order to break into this market would be an understatement. Just ask Motorola how tough it could be. And Nokia... And Ericsson...
 
Blackberry is hot with their Storm smartphone, and of course Apple keeps moving iPhone after iPhone. Even the Google phone from T-Mobile (T1) is enjoying some success.
 
But that's quite a lineup to sidle up to and say "I want to compete with you."
 
The reports say that Dell would release a Windows Mobile version and an Android version as well.
 
Sure, Dell has competed (and for a while was winning the battle) on the PC and laptop front. They have the wherewithal to market and move products and accessories.
 
But will they compete on design? Ease of use? Access to apps? Price?
 
Time will tell.
