Dell Tackles Sales Slump

Dell revealed on Friday that it was forming a new division that would handle all of its mainstream computer hardware. Called Global Consumer, the group is tasked with revitalizing Dell's designs and adapting the business to the developing world, where many are using computers for the first time. The move is likely due to underwhelming performance, as the company has recently suffered at the hands of its rival Hewlett-Packard, which stole share from the system builder over the past year and trigged a downfall that ultimately resulted in the return of Michael Dell to the lead of his own company.

Surprisingly, the new section will be headed by Motorola's mobile device head Ron Garriques, who today announced that he would leave the phone maker for Dell. The leader was perhaps best known for overseeing the company's attempt to capitalize on the success of the RAZR, and earned a minor amount of notoriety for an unintentional presentation leak that revealed Motorola's 2007 phones ahead of the 3GSM expo.
