Dell drops hard drive-based MP3 players
Dell has officially discontinued its hard drive-based DJ MP3 players. The PC giant will continue to sell flash-based DJ Ditty MP3 players, so it's not completely bowing out of the digital audio player scene. Hard drive-based players from other manufacturers will continue to be sold on Dell's web site, as well.
According to Dell, the move from hard drive- to flash-based MP3 players is an attempt to "streamline and consolidate" the company's portfolio. Hard drive-based DJs apparently didn't grab much market share, either. And so another would-be iPod killer bites the dust.
