NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- For all the talks about the death of the PC, conversations that I've considered grossly premature, it seems that the prolonged struggles of tech giant Dell (DELL) would suggest that this morbid chatter may actually be right on time. For a company I have always wanted to give the benefit of the doubt, it is getting progressively difficult to ignore that the "lights at the end of tunnels" could be those of an incoming train.As its most recent quarter would suggest, these lights are now coming from both directions; Dell's best option might be to change tunnels altogether. In other words, it needs to shift its focus and possibly rethink its strategies.
Dell Should Buy RIM or Die
