I'd say requirement for AA games on portable device is niche itself, but for those that do want, smartphones are not alternative - not until you get standardised hardware controls and, of course, AA games themselves. Borderlands 2 being one of them.
Tablets are mostly too big to complete in the same category, though same limitation apply to them - not many (if any) AA titles, no standard controller layout.
