Dell To Close Up Shop On Mobile Business Division

It was only recently that Dell threw their might behind Windows Phone 7 and introduced a host of devices including the fabled Venue Pro, a 4.1capacitive touch sliding portrait QWERTY keyboard and the Streak, an Android OS tablet featuring a 5touch screen, full GPS capabilities and 3G connectivity.

Despite the launch of new smartphones running Windows Phone 7, Dell is said to be closing down their Mobile Division, coinciding with the resignation of Ron Garriques. Garriques, who has been with Dell since 2007 and is currently the Communication Solutions President, will continue with the company as a consultantin the interim as Dell sorts out their future plans for the mobile market.

Hopefully Dell will continue to support their existing handsets, and move towards consolidating their departments to offer consumers more devices.
