Gaming on a Smartphone

Gaming has not necessarily to do something with PCs and Consoles only. Today I want to talk about gaming on smartphones. A half year ago, I was one of those persons, that didn't understand at all why you HAVE to have a smartphone.

Do you want to know how my old mobile phone looked like?

Here you go:

I don't know why but somehow and suddenly, I have felt an overwhelming urge to buy me a smartphone. Therefore I have, like I always do when considering to buy someting new, researched the internet for "ages". Finally I have found the phone that satisfies my needs at best.

This was the result and I am quite satisfied with it (Orange San Francisco).

Some specs:

Cpu: 600 mhz
Display: TFT, 480 x 800 pixels, 65'000 colors, 3.5 inch
Camera: 3.2 megapixel
Size: 116 x 56.5 x 11.8 mm
Weight: 130g
OS: Android 2.1 (custom roms with 2.3 work as well)
Standby: 9 days
Talk time: 4 hrs

This are impressive specs, if you consider that it only costs 99 pounds.

For now, I have only played a few games on my phone, e.g. Angry Birds & Fruit Ninja.

It is quite amazing what phones can do nowadays. The last game I have played was some ugly 2d racing game on my nokia. Do you have some games that I should definitely check out on my smartphone?
Tell me in the comments please.

although I'd love to list a few, best is if you would google "best smartphone games (for your OS) " As they say seeing is much more better than talking :-)
