Dell to still back Android Despite their recent discontinuation of the Streak 5 and Streak 7 tablets, Dell has said they will still back Android into the future.
The company has currently shut down most of their mobile devices, and their only remaining American-available smartphones are the Dell Venue and Venue Pro, each of which run on Windows Phone 7.5. Speculation was Dell is waiting for Windows 8 for their next round of tablets.

Dell offers a 10-inch Android tablet, but only in China.

Says the company of their thoughts on Android (via Verge):

Dell remains committed to the mobility market and continues to sell products here and in other parts of the world. Streak 7 delivered a unique experience for customers who wanted a larger screen-size yet the freedom of staying connected to their personal and professional content while on the-go. It continues to be available in many markets through retail, distributors and carrier partners such as Optus in Australia. A 10-inch version of the tablet, Streak 10 Pro, is currently offered in China, offering the ultimate digital divide between work and life. The Venue and Venue Pro devices, as well, continue to earn accolades for performance, design and functionality around the world. We also recently launched the Latitude ST, a 10-inch Windows 7-based touch-screen tablet designed for vertical markets such as education, finance and healthcare in November of this year. We remain committed to expanding our reach beyond PCs with a targeted set of open, standards-based mobility solutions and services designed for commercial and mobile professional customers.
