Dell Swaps Employees Blackberrys for Venue Pro

Dell is planning on moving some 25,000 of their employees off the Blackberry, and into their WP7 offering: the utterly gorgeous Dell Venue Pro. Employees will be invited to swap in their old RIM device in exchange for a shiny new phone, with Android alternatives in the works too. This move away from the venerable Crackberry is a cost-saving measure, designed to save Dell up to 25% on their mobile communications fees, mostly due to not needing Blackberry servers.

Plus, I’m sure they can get the Dell Pro in-house for substantially less than a Blackberry.

I wonder if they’re hiring…
