    * Phone will use Google's Android software

    * Targeted for as soon as early 2010

    LOS ANGELES, Oct 7 (Reuters) - Dell Inc (DELL.O) plans to launch a smartphone with Google's (GOOG.O) Android mobile software on carrier AT&T's (T.N) network as soon as in early 2010, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.

    That would mark Dell's first foray into the booming and competitive U.S. smartphone market, now fought over by the likes of Apple (AAPL.O) and Research in Motion (RIM.TO).

    The Wall Street Journal, citing people briefed on the matter, reported that Dell's phone would come with a touch-screen and a camera. AT&T and Google were not immediately available for comment. Dell declined comment. (Editing by Carol Bishopric)
  2. 165 million smartphone users in the world out of total world population of 6.8 billion people. I think there is further growth in the smartphone market. Far from overcrowded.
