Are you an iPhone gamer? Android fan? Windows Phone addict? Xperia loyalist? While the mobile phone gaming industry has settled into a set of easily manageable platforms over the past few years, there's still plenty of choice. Which have you chosen?
I am currently in possession of four different smart phones dedicated to gaming, covering Android, Windows Phone and iOS. My desk looks like the kitchen table of a corrupt TSA screener. Here's what I'm currently using.
Wait, you don't have an iPhone 5, Fahey? I do not. The folks at AT&T who convinced me I had an upgrade coming if I made some changes to my account, but it turns out those changes only managed to rob me of the grandfathered unlimited data plan I had been enjoying for several years without making me eligible for an upgrade. I can upgrade iPhone 5 in December, but I don't think I'm going to. I'll keep the iPhone 4 as a glorified iPod Touch for gaming purposes, but I've got my sights set on something a bit more Android-y.
The most visually striking phone of the bunch, the Nokia Lumia 900's raised screen and sleek design turns a lot of heads. It's my Windows Phone 7 device, my gateway to Xbox Live-enabled mobile gaming. With Windows Phone 8 handsets around the corner this little beauty might not have a long life to live, but right now it's my constant companion, thanks in no small part to Crimson Dragon: Side Story.
