The slight thaw in relations between Dell Computer Corp. and rival computer maker Apple Computer Inc. will not extend to Europe, at least as far as the iPod MP3 player is concerned.
“There are no plans to offer the iPod in Europe at this time,” said Dell U.K. spokeswoman, Laura Kemp [CQ] in an e-mail response to questions.
Dell announced it had begun selling Apple’s 5GB, 10GB and 20GB iPods for Windows
in the U.S., through its direct sales channel.
Apple representatives could not immediately be reached for comment.
