Dell has announced that it will cease to develop and ship its line of Jukebox portable MP3 players. Over the past year, sales of Dell's MP3 players have seen poor sales numbers. Stiff competition from others, especially Apple, affected Dell's sales performance on all high end units. Analysts are saying that Dell was unable to complete because it lacked a true integrated package-- such as iTunes. Apple meanwhile connects its iPod, OS, with iTunes on a very successful and global level. Dell at this time has no plans to reintroduce its MP3 players.
Dell MP3 DJs are unaffected by the announcement, and are still on sale via Dell's website.
