I found these images on a random google search. Out of curiosity how many of you would buy an Alienware phone if Dell made one? (Obviously not one like these, they are a little out dated. But a phone that can compete with the S3 or iPhone 5)

Since gaming is slowly growing on mobile platforms, would it be a good move by Dell a mobile device to compete in that market?
 
I think they'd have a very tough time with it. More phones now a days look exactly the same with maybe a couple light difference. They'd be better off building a tablet, they can at least have some heavy duty processor in it for gaming. Phone is out the question.
Next problem is that they'd have to come out with a working model right now, because Razer is coming to the end stages of Project Phiona and tablet from every other manufacturer are already bringing new tablets out. I think Alienware is kinda screwed, they've firmly wedged themselves in the 'High End PC' spot on the market and it'll be nearly impossible for them to expand with how they are going.
I think they need more than just new form factor laptops, they need so make a chain of more affordable products so people go "Oh wow, Alienware" more often. I get that reaction with my laptop at the mall but only because I had 14XX$ to dish out, more people settle for some HP or Compaq piece of crap.

Both of you have very valid points. I agree that if AW was going to expand in the mobile market, an AW tablet would be the way to go instead of an AW phone. Then if the tablet actually takes a chunk of the market share, Im sure a phone would follow suit.

But who are we kidding, this is just a pipe dream.
