I still get some minor slowdowns during intense portions of some games.

The amount of power alone that it takes to power this thing drains a 6 cell battery in 30 minutes! There's so much heat it's like I have a blow dryer on my lap.

There is no doubt that the phone processor will be much more power efficient and the screen will suck less power but I still think we are a long way off from having enough power in a mobile phone.
My Asus G51Vt laptop with a 2.4ghz core 2 duo and a nvidia 9800gs runs dolphin games at a constant 45fps without a problem at full 1080p resolutions. I also use it regularly on my G71G which also plays it at a constant 60fps, thats with a 2.53ghz core 2 duo and 2gb more ram than the G51Vt.

If you are having slow downs, you probably aren't optimizing it for your setup. There should be a link on their website for optimizations.

Also, I guess I should specify this a little better, I'm not exactly picturing Dolphin running on a mobile phone, I'm leaning more to the tablet sector that is blowing up right now.
