Dell's Rival to Ipod touch


Dell is developing a pocket-sized gadget fashioned after Apple's iPod Touch that will play music, videos, and connect with the Web and is based on the Google Android mobile operating system.
Dell hopes to break a bad streak of luck with consumer gadgets. It wasn't very successful with its DJ Ditty music player line or with the Axim PDAs, which got axed a few years ago. Dell is giving pocket-sized devices one more shot, this time with an iPod Touch-style mobile Internet device (MID). So will it make a difference?
Dell's upcoming MID is slightly larger than the iPod Touch, and does not have cell phone capabilities. In development since last year, Dell's unnamed gadget will not rely on Dell's in-house software team and instead should benefit from using the Android OS.
We've seen earlier this month a fuzzy photo of what it was supposed to be Dell's smartphone project, a Palm Pre look-alike. But we also know that Dell's first mobile phone prototypes have been rejected by wireless networks operators because the designs were too dull. This time around though, Dell has more support from wireless carriers
