Is Dell looking to take on the DS and PSP in the portable console front? Not likely, but it sounds like they might have found another option.
Dell's Global Gaming Chief Abizar Vakharia, at a European Innovation event in Marbella, Spain, was quoted as saying "you know, [a future gaming handheld is] definitely one that's on the radar screen, but we have no plans to talk about anything today."
Dell has shown great interest
in touting itself as the premier hardware for PC gaming, even buying game-centric hardware company Alienware
. Will Dell make a portable PC with a size similar to PSP? Probably, and they'll probably market its "awesome graphics and gaming capabilities." But it doesn't sound like that hardware will surface anytime soon, assuming it passes the prototype stage. We'll still lament
the plethora of garbage-ware that they'll fill the device with.
