Dell drops portable music ideas

MP3 players

has reportedly decided to drop all plans to introduce a new iPod-rivalling MP3 player. To be honest I’m out of touch with anything Dell makes apart from computers so I hadn’t realised that the ‘DJ Ditty’ was even in existence. Well, not for much longer anyway, according to the DJLife community forum who claim it’s been discontinued.

Probably just as well. Dell should stick to computers as something where it has a decent lead. The MP3 player market is getting very crowded, with Microsoft, Sandisk, Creative and others all looking to steal a piece of Apple’s crown.

I won’t make any bad jokes about Dell making explosive music players.
