Dell, one of the world's largest suppliers of personal computers and various IT services, said that the early work with Windows 8 operating system when it comes to tablets is encouraging. Besides, the company said that both Google Android and Microsoft Windows are parts of its mobile strategy.

"Our early work on Windows 8 on the tablet side looks to be pretty encouraging," said Michael Dell, chief executive officer and chairman of Dell during a conference call with financial analysts.

At present Dell sells smartphones based on Google Android and Microsoft Windows Phone 7 operating systems as well as offers tablets powered by Android 2.2 and Windows 7 Home. The company's gadgets are hardly truly popular at the moment, but the company seems to have set its strategy already and only sees Android and Windows as major building blocks for its future devices.

"We are still quite interested in Android. [...] We think it is shaping up to be a competitive environment. I don't think beyond those two [operating systems] that there are viable alternatives that make sense. So there is a lot of other noise out there in the market that I do not think will amount to much of anything," said Mr. Dell.

At present Hewlett-Packard is mulling to let other makers of devices to use its webOS operating system for their products. Besides, there are some other players on the market that may open up their mobile OSs for licensing. Looks like Dell does not believe in those platforms and intends to keep its Android-Windows strategy.
