Dell pushing the pedal on tablets, optimistic about mobile business
In the past hours the company's head of mobile department Ron Garriques was announced to be leaving the company in January, after a restructuring, which integrates his department into Dell's core structure. The restructuring, however, would not mean that Dell will slow down its development in the mobile field, according to CFO Brian Gladden. Quite the opposite, as the company now works with both Windows and Google to out its latest devices. What we have seen so far includes the Android-powered smartphone Dell Aero and the 5-inch tablet Dell Streak, while Windows Phone 7 is represented by the Dell Venue Pro.
“Our strong results demonstrate that we are listening to customers and delivering what they want”, CEO Michael Dell, summed the company's momentum in a statement. The company's executive officer went on to confirm that Dell will stick with both Android and WP7 operating systems. Do you share Dell's enthusiasm about tablets?
