Dell shelves MP3 player plan – for now…

Dell has shelved previously-revealed plans to launch an own-brand MP3 player.

While the company never confirmed such plans, Dell had been expected to introduce its new device in time for the holidays this year, now those plans appear shelved “indefinitely”.

The product development team for the project is led by a former Apple product manager tasked with development of the new device, Tim Bucher.

Now a Reuters report citing the Wall Street Journal claims that Dell may now axe its planned new MP3 player before it even launches – but will proceed with the launch of “a media jukebox and sharing application”, based on Zing software it acquired earlier this year.
