It wasn’t that long ago that we learned that Dell was no longer selling netbooks or Android tablets in the US. While the company does still have a business-oriented Windows tablet in its lineup and plans to get back into the consumer tablet space later this year, it looks like the company is ending yet another consumer electronics line.

PC World reports that Dell is no longer selling smartphones in the US.

Dell Venue Pro

Dell’s last two phones were the Venue and Venue Pro. Both ran Windows Phone software.

The company is no longer selling either phone in the US, and doesn’t currently have a replacement. It’s not clear whether Dell will offer any other smartphones in then near future.

Dell has never been a huge name in the US smartphone space. But before smartphones killed the PDA market, Dell offered some of the most popular Windows Mobile personal digital assistants under its Axim brand.

For now, Dell continues to offer a few smartphones in Japan, China, and other markets. You can also find a 10 inch Dell Android tablet in China.

But in the US Dell appears to be returning to its roots as a PC company… at least for now.

  1. Dell even fails at failing.  Their excuse for tablets was Android + tablets don’t mix so they were going with Windows 8 tablets.  Now they stop selling Android AND WP7 phones in the U.S.  Wow.  Looks like nothing Microsoft of Google makes for mobile works for Dell.  Wonder how HTC, Nokia, Motorola, Samsung and LG have all managed to stay afloat?
