Dell employees will be offered the upcoming Dell Venue Pro—which runs Microsoft Corp.'s new Windows Phone 7 software—in exchange for their BlackBerrys. Eventually, the company also will offer phones powered by Google Inc.'s Android software.

The switch begins next week and will save the company about 25% in mobile communication costs, primarily by eliminating the need for BlackBerry servers, Mr. Gladden said.

Dell will begin marketing a service to its business clients within two weeks aimed at helping them make a similar switch.
