Apple is a computer company before all else, this much is fact. The iPhone is far more computer than phone, and besides its design, that is why it’s so popular. It reinvented the cellphone industry in no small way, and it happened because Apple isn’t a phone company.
Neither is Google, but the Android OS is on some levels more exciting than the iPhone. And now rumors are swirling that Alienware, the gaming computer company, is working on its own superphone, based on Android.
Alienware makes impressive hardware, and if it can fold that experience into a handheld device, we could well see a whole new market of handsets evolve, leaving phone makers in the past.
