Dell Denies Google Phone

Dell today denied claims that it would release a phone developed with Google at next month's Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona. Company spokeswoman Anne Camden explains that Dell neither has any product to announce at the event nor has any plans to attend. The official did not explicitly confirm or deny the possibility of a phone at any point in the future, making any announcement unlikely until considerably later in the year at the earliest.

The rumor, first begun by a UK magazine with an alleged link to an industry source, would have Dell return to the handheld market it dropped with the cancellation of the Axim PDA. The hardware would feature Google services and would potentially be based on Google's Android mobile operating system rather than the Windows Mobile platform of the Axim series.
