DigiTimes writes Dell may have plans to get back into the handheld device market. The site claims the firm may team up with Foxconn to developed Windows Mobile-based handhelds.
Dell has been reorganizing its team for handheld devices since it hired Ron Garriques, a former executive vice president at Motorola in charge of its cell phone division, in early 2007, the sources indicated.

Dell apparently has accelerated its move towards the handheld device segment following Acer's recent announcement of acquiring Taiwan-based smartphone maker E-Ten Information Systems, the sources added.

Foxconn, an important partner for Dell, is also reportedly recruiting talent from other Taiwan-based handset makers in preparation for accepting orders from Dell, the sources pointed out.
