Is Dell buying Radio Shack?

There have been rumors recently that Dell might be considering buying Radio Shack.
On Monday and Tuesday, an unusually high number of RadioShack stock options were traded, which could be the result of "unsubstantiated rumors" that the Austin computer giant is planning to purchase the retail chain, the Star-Telegram reported Wednesday.

The idea isn't as far-fetched as some analysts might think. In a May 2007 article, BusinessWeek suggested the acquisition of RadioShack's 4,000-plus stores would give Dell "a meaningful retail footprint" in which to sell its PCs.
If so, would Dell become a private label product?
