Dell takes on Apple in digital music

Dell is making plans to enter the digital music market once again, and has been testing a new music player that may go on sale as soon as September, a report claims.

It’s not the first time Dell has attempted to secure space in the digital music market, but it withdrew its previous MP3 player – the DJ Ditty (pictured) – in the face of the Apple juggernaut (and extremely low sales).

As described in the Wall Street Journal, the device will connect to online music services via WiFi Internet connection, and will cost less than $100. It features a small navigation screen and basic button controls to scroll through music play lists, the Journal reported.

Dell is reportedly working on iTunes-like software for a range of portable PCs that will let users download and organize music and movies from various online sources, the paper added.
