Corel, Dell agree to software bundling deal

Dell Computer Corp. has agreed to include a version of Ottawa-based Corel Corp.’s office suite in two of its computer lines.

Under the bundling agreement, Dell’s Dimension and Inspiron computer lines will include WordPerfect 10 and Quattro Pro 10. These systems will be available beginning in September in North America.

This comes on the heels of the revelation that Dell has been selling business PCs without Microsoft’s operating system Windows for some time. PCs without Windows are only available to enterprise customers. [Please see Dell offers business open-air PCs, without Windows.]

“Our customers are always looking for new tools to help make their computing experience easy and productive,” said Lory Pilchik, Dell’s director of transactional marketing in a statement. “Having Corel’s products on some of select desktops and notebooks means more choice and that in turn is a win for our customers.”
