A Dell HandHeld Gaming Device?

It is no secret that Dell has been trying to expand its market share in video games. The release of their XPS 710 H2C top-line gaming PC was a very clear signal that they mean business.

A senior Dell executive just gave a clue to what direction they might be taking. Abizar Vakharia, Dell's Global gaming chief, when asked about the future of handheld gaming replied with a very serious look "You know, that's definitely one that's on the radar screen, but we have no plans to talk about anything today."

If Dell does go ahead with the device it will probably be a a Ultra-Mobile PC (UMPC) style device because of Dell's close connections with Intel and Microsoft.

Ill keep you updated as more news comes in.

Thanks PCPlus!

Cheers,
