Dell has put its plan to launch a competitor to Apple's iPod on hold.

Earlier this year, it was claimed that Dell was intending to release an iPod rival this autumn. Expected to be priced at £50, the device was expected to feature Wi-Fi connectivity.

However, the Wall Street Journal reports that Dell has admitted it is delaying the MP3 player indefinitely and instead focusing on its Zing software. Zong organises music and movie files which have been downloaded while also offering links to various online download services.
