According to Taiwanese DigiTimes, Dell is expected to return into the Windows Mobile market again, after the company axed its Axim-line of Windows Mobile Classic Pocket PCs last year.
Taiwanese market sources indicates that Dell may team up with Foxconn Electronics to develop Windows Mobile-based handheld devices, including GPS PDAs and smartphones
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.

Interesting enough, as DigiTimes mentioned, two affiliated companies under the Foxconn Group are Chi Mei Communication Systems (CMCS) and Mobinnova which have already landed smartphone orders from other handset vendors, including Motorola where CMCS developed and manufactured the MPx200 years ago. Nevertheless, Dell is expected to team up directly with Foxconn for the production of handheld devices.

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