“You’ll probably see some products next year in the United States that are family members with some of the things we started in China,” Michael Dell said at FiRe today.
He discussed the mobile phones Dell’s developed for China Mobile on a variant of the Google-backed Android operating system.
Host Mark Anderson pressed Dell – one of Microsoft’s biggest customers – on what operating system his U.S.-bound phones will use.
“They’d be Android,” Dell said.
Last week the Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed sources, reported Dell would release an Android phone in early 2010 for AT&T.
Michael was on the record, but he didn’t specify the carrier.
