Is Dell working on a smartphone?

In a report about Dell’s recent hiring of Ron Garriques who was head of Motorola’s handsets group to run a new division focused on consumer products, EETimes Online suggests that the move could signal Dell’s intent to move into the mobile phone market.

Garriques’ mandate will be to run an organization that will set new standards for innovative product design, leadership in providing the best customer experience, and flexibility in how we build and distribute products and services to meet the evolving needs of our customers around the world, according to Michael Dell. So, combine new products with Garriques’ Motorola experience and presto, instant rumour.

Take this one with a big grain of salt!
