Dell To Offer Employees Free Venue Pro

Dell have produced one of the more unique Windows Phone 7 devices in the Dell Venue Pro and it’s not too surprising that they’ve decided to offer their employees their latest handset for free. It’s not a bad idea either, after all it’s surely better for their employees to be using their own product rather than the BlackBerry devices produced by rival RIM.

Dell employees will surely be happy to receive one of the latest handsets for absolutely nothing while Dell will also be able to cut a huge chunk out of their expenses. It seems maintaining support for BlackBerry servers costs them a fair bit and their communications bill may be reduced by as much as 25%.

It has been suggested that up to 25,000 BlackBerry devices may be replaced by Dell’s own Venue Pro and that’s a lot of potential e-waste, so let’s hope Dell do the responsible thing and make sure those old BlackBerry mobile phones are recycled.

Other recent rumours surrounding Dell suggest there will be an Android variant of the Venue Pro. If the rumours are true then Dell’s two Android devices will both feature a strong selling point, one having one of the largest screens seen on an Android handset and the other featuring the more unusual vertical sliding QWERTY keyboard.
