Dell is offering to trade employees’ old and broken BlackBerry devices for the new Venue Pro. That’s pretty generous of the company and if everyone takes them up on the offer, there will be 25,000 RIM smartphones out of a job.
It is not just nice to do, its good for business. The Wall Street Journal says that this will cut Dell’s mobile communications bill by a full quarter, as they will no longer have to support BlackBerry servers. In other news Android variants will be made available in the future as well.
