Last week, there were rumors that Dell was planning a music player to rival the iPod to reinvigorate its consumer products, but those rumors have since been quelled . On Monday, the Dell blog states clearly that a music player will not be part of their long-term plans to reach consumers.
"As we said a few months ago, our strategy focuses on content offerings and delivery platforms that mix Zing software, remote access and pre-configured media bundles across all of our devices, including licensing agreements with entertainment distributors," said the post. "It has never been about a music player."
So for now, don't expect Dell to jump into the music game. Apple still has that market and will probably dominate the music market with their slick music products for years to come.
