Dell plans to sell its smartphones in India to enter the worldâ€™s second-largest wireless market. The company, based in Round Rock, Texas, which sells computers to home-users and businesses in the worldâ€™s second most populous country, placed an advertisement in local newspapers on Wednesday, saying it is making â€œa move into mobile phonesâ€ and sought distributors with â€œretail reach.â€ â€œIndia is one of the key markets for Dell and as we work on plans to bring smartphones to this market, we continue to explore various go-to-market options,â€ Mahesh Bhalla, a general manager who oversees the local unitâ€™s consumer division, said. Dell, which follows Apple and Research in Motion to India, is seeking to tap a market where users are expected to exceed 771 million by 2013, according to researcher Gartner. India had about 618 million mobile-phone accounts as of May-end , according to the nationâ€™s telecom regulator, second only to Chinaâ€™s market in size. CEO Michael Dell led his namesake company into the smartphone market in 2009 and set up a new communications group in December, headed by former Motorola phone chief Ron Garriques, to develop phones and mobile gadgets.
