Dell has apparently abandoned their Android tablet product line. They recently announced they will no longer be making any Android based tablets, and will not even be pushing out updates to their existing ones. They indicated they intend to refocus their efforts on 2-in-1 Windows devices instead.

Dell will continue to provide remaining warranty support to their existing Android tablet line, like the Dell Venue 8. Here's a quote from a Dell spokesperson in an email,

"The slate tablet market is over-saturated and is experiencing declining demand from consumers, so we’ve decided to discontinue the Android-based Venue tablet line."

What do you folks think of Dell's decision? Do any of you own a Dell Android tablet?
