Dell, the world’s second-largest personal-computer maker, is among companies thought by analysts to be potential buyers of Motorola’s handset business. Motorola said last week it was reviewing strategic options including splitting off its phone unit.

“We really don’t comment on rumors and speculation,” Michael Dell told Reuters in an interview. “We are more focused on the computer business.”
