The global smartphone industry is expected to grow to reach $150 billion in 2014, and Dell (DELL) wants no part of it. According toÂ Jeff Clarke, head of Dell’s consumer business, the company has no plans to re-enter the smartphone race anytime soon.Â ”It needs a lot of investments to really be successful,” Clarke told Forbes on Wednesday during the Dell World conference, and the company is apparently unwilling to make those investments.

Clarke also confirmed that Dell is done with Android for the time being, instead focusing on tablets running Microsoft’s (MSFT) Windows 8 platform.Â ”Itâ€™s a content play with Android. Amazon is selling books and Google is making it up with search. So far we couldnâ€™t find a way to build a business on Android,” the executive said.
