It is definitely easier said than done, and while the high-volume has many competitors, I would think the competition in the high-revenue is a lot stiffer, in that it involves more educated decisions.

That would be ideal but is easier said than done. If you are an organization that has some market reach and provides value, why not try to encroach on the big boys. It might just stir up a potential acquisition if all goes well.

I think unless you rule a consumer electronics segment (Apple iPods, etc), a company should want to be in the less competitive big enterprise, high revenue business.

I will say "all of the above". It appeared Dell may be the next in line as the top rated electronic company in PC

Is Dell moving from the hardware to firmware developer?

Yes. I think as you step into the large enterprises, IBM has a stranglehold. But with SMBs up to medium size, Dell is a leader. Dell also has a major stake in governmental organizations as well. That's a pretty nice portfolio to hang onto.

Dell had to approaches, first was to go for corporate world and I think they had a great success there, I think Lenovo/IBM still lead the way but they have to be in the mix. 

Regarding normal customers, they were the first (?) that allowed full customization and being able to do that effectively.

I don't think I'd agree that Dell is really looking to innovate. Firstly, cloud is the in-thing these days and Dell (unlike other technology giants) is yet to make a presence in this area. Secondly, Dell's only development in the smartphone/tablet arena was with it's Dell Streak. This didn't make a strong impact either and I don't think Dell is coming up with any other smartphone or tablet versions.

Dell has infiltrated many companies and healthcare systems through their supply chain. Most institutions engaged in using dell computers and accessories. This is good for Dell. Hope they keep up with the Quality and reliability. Any deviation will be a serious disaster to dell products.

Dell has really improved in the recent years. In the beginning, they were pricey and reached only the sophisticated. But now, Dell is more focused on all levels of people, particularly in laptops. But if the different flavors of tablets are introduced, it will also increase its market share.
