Dell is leaving the LCD television business to focus on its core PC products amid an ongoing company overhaul by founder Michael Dell, Taiwan media reported Thursday.

Dell, the world's No. 2 personal computer maker, will cease making Dell-branded LCD TVs this month, the Chinese-language Economic Daily reported, citing unnamed sources.

A Dell representative said the company currently sells LCD TVs in a limited number of markets, including Japan and the United States, but had no comment about the Economic Daily report.

Dell entered the LCD television market in late 2003, amid a broader wave that also saw cell phone giant Motorola enter the sector in a bid to become more diversified providers of consumer electronics.
