25,000 Dell Employees Get Venue Pro, Dump BlackBerry

Ars Technica:

Dell is shifting 25,000 of its employees, or one-quarter of its work force, from Research in Motion’s BlackBerry to its own Windows Phone 7-powered Venue Pro. The company is still in discussions with T-Mobile USA, the carrier for the Venue Pro, for buying voice and data in bulk.

And that’s not all. Microsoft will be doing something similar and transitioning its 89,000 employees to Windows Phone devices.
