CES 2020: Dell's future folding, dual screen, and handheld gaming devices

RGB LED rings around the joysticks can change colors depending on what is occurring onscreen or during gameplay. Low life for example can cause the lights to flash red

The Switch came out years ago, so dated hardware (by modern standards) is to be expected, and it remains an impressive device regardless (primarily due to its fantastic game library).

It looks like Dell is moving into the handheld PC space.

Concept UFO's 8-inch screen has a 1200p resolution, which is a big step up compared to the Switch's 6.2-inch, 720p screen.

The Alienware Concept UFO also has a stand at the back that you can extend, if you prefer your screen and controls to be detached.

The new Alienware UFO is essentially a full-blown gaming PC, but it is compacted into the size of a Nintendo Switch and has the same button layout as well. Then again, you can remove the controllers, if you want to, which would turn the device into a regular Windows tablet for gaming? The company does say that it "spent the last few months testing and enhancing the buttons, the weight, all to strike a flawless balance between performance, ultra-mobility, and battery life".

While Dell is demonstrating all three of these concepts at CES this week, the company is very careful to highlight that they're all just concepts at this stage, and may not ever make it to market.

Australia commits extra A$2 billion for bushfire rebuilding
The deployment will build up over the next few days and weeks as required and remain in place until it is no longer needed. Wildfires are common during the southern hemisphere summer, and Australians generally take a pragmatic view of them.

Dell says the device will deliver "uncompromised" performance, without expanding on what that means.

The difference is that the Concept UFO is a full-fledged Windows 10 PC, shrunk down and created to allow users to play PC games on the go.

The problem with the UFO is that it's not made by Nintendo, and Dell doesn't have the kind of games that would convince anyone to purchase a handheld console.

Unveiled at CES 2020, this is a prototype of a portable PC with more than a few influences taken from Nintendo's popular console.

Alienware products also have the reputation of not being the cheapest so expect anywhere from $800-2000 United States dollars depending on the internal specs of the UFO. From the sounds of it, however, the UFO will hardly be able to match the Switch and Switch Lite pricing structure. That's when we'll learn about the device's price as well.
