Dell's smartphone appeal has not been domestic. The Texas-based company began selling phones first in countries like Brazil and China before the U.S.
In the U.S. the company's 5-inch Streak smartphone and tablet did get some positive feedback, and Samsung has gone a similar size route with its Galaxy Note.
Dell's larger Streak tablet hasn't been on a selling streak -- especially compared to other offerings from Apple, Samsung and Amazon.com's Kindle Fire -- but with touch-oriented Windows 8, Dell may be able to better compete in the U.S. tablet market.
