    I wonder whether this will spur any of the other gaming brands to put out a phone. Alienware phone ftw!

    The specs on this phone is pretty crazy, especially the ram - thats pretty much what most laptop has. Also, the screen might be a key selling point, as I've only seen the resolution get higher and higher, but haven't seen any increase in refresh rate.

    Hopefully get to see some reviews of this later.

    But are the cameras any good? ;) I'm guessing not, since they don't even mention whether it even has cameras.

    I'm seeing the gamers buy bigger and better monitors. Is there really a market for a serious gaming phone, especially given its Android and there are no Android games that even stress the current phones AFAIK? Is this just a super fast Nintendo with phone and text capability and a less advanced game library?

    I bet the extra bits cost a mint too.

    Just saw this video about it



    Its a bit over the top (the video that is), the theres some interesting things with the phone

    I like the ideas of the docks and extras, but I do have consoles\PCs for gaming so i dont think its really aimed for me :)

    ASUS are now entering the mobile phone market, seemingly as a competitor of Razor with their offering.

    Price not yet known, or if it'll be available here, but it's expected to be released from Q3 this year.

    Hardware UX wise, they've really put thought into this.

    Turns out there's a number of Youtube review clips about it already, like this one.

    For the hardcore Farmville enthusiast? What?

    Why does this scream "casual" to me

    Wow, this is pretty damn nice. The dock is a cool idea... pity it'd be well out of my budget :(
