Dell prefers Windows Mobile 7 to Android

Easier to develop software
Microsoft's Windows Mobile 7 is easier to develop software for than Google's Android, according to Tin Box shifter, Michael Dell.

Michael Dell, the CEO of Dell, said that Dell had not got much experience with Android. While speaking at an event in Hong Kong, the Dell CEO said that according to feedback from developers, developing for Windows Phone 7 was less hassle than developing for Android.

Dell also revealed that his company plans to launch several more tablets in the next year, so we can guess they will not be Chrome based. Dell said that Tablets were a bit problematic as there was a lot of debate in the the market as to who is dumb enough to be buying them, why and for how much.

“Those sort of questions always emerge when there’s a new form factor," said Dell.

Michael Dell was also the one who said Athlon64 was not worth it... amongst other stupid things I didn't bother to remember.

Simply put, he's an idiot. (with money)

Android is a relatively fresh OS compared to WinMob, so obviously there will be some difficulties in development, just that this OS is adopted so friggin' fast that it makes up for the downside in market share.

My english isn't great, but if I understood correctly what he is saying is:

We're too lazy and don't want to bother, so we'll stick with the smaller market share.

Well, Android web experience is more pleasant on a touchscreen in my opinion. Give or take, Windows tablet display the web more correctly because you can choose to have any browser which is a plus. Put a dual core processor and a descent gpu on an Android and we might have a definite winner for a tablet based entertainment computer. Right now, the 1GHz just doesn't cut it for Android tablet.
