Dell is looking to grow by improving its core hardware business with new products and better management capabilities.
Expanding on its early lead in software customization, Dell will preload, on request, software supporting new messaging devices like Research in Motion Inc.'s Blackberry product.
The Blackberry device is a pager with a small screen and keyboard that automatically routes e-mail from Microsoft Corp.'s Exchange. The benefit over similar devices is that a user doesn't need to maintain or distribute a second e-mail address.
Dell this fall will begin the first phase of a real-time chat service between customers and technicians, according to Carl Everett, senior vice president of the Personal Systems Group. The benefit is that customers won't have to wait on hold on the telephone but can instead get questions answered almost immediately....(Cont'd)

Would seem device is ideal for outdoor activity oriented people such as hunters, trappers, hikers, etc. Perfect for emergency notification, should be waterproofed and shockproofed and given locating signal. THE ADVENTURER SERIES seems appropriate and could be sold through any or all of the major outfitters catalogs.
My hunting friends think its a great idea. Would appreciate your opinion and hope RIMM is also reading this post.
Editor in Chief highy impressed with 850 and 950 models. Devotes almost a full page to RIM and products. Article very positive and suggests wireless data access will be more convenient to many than the cell phone. Well worth a read . Try WWW.SMALLOFFICE.COM for contact.
an announcement about RIM developing some outsourcing deals or manufacturing partnerships for its pagers. There is NO WAY this company can crank out enough product to meet the demand, and this production constraint also caps their possible EPS for the next year or so. Unlike with software companies, there is a practical limit on what sort of revenue they can generate.
Now, if RIM co-brands with DELL, and DELL takes on some manufacturing committments too, the analysts will be free to set target prices as high as they want.
