I am debating on getting a smart phone for the first time. I avoided it before because I didn't feel like paying $30 more a month, when all I really used my phone for before was calls and texts. I was always around computers whether at work or home. And I never used much facebook or twitter or anything. But I am changing jobs soon, and might get more use out of it now.
I have always enjoyed playing my DS and PSP, and everyone says mobiles are the future of portable gaming. I don't really know much about them and nothing about gaming on them. I think gaming would be a big draw for me, as I enjoy portables, and also some psx and snes emulators would rock too. I was debating on getting the Galaxy Nexus coming out in a few weeks, with some black friday sales, but now I see that NVidia is releasing Tegra 3 GPU possibly next spring. They are saying it is on par with PS Vita. The tech demos I have seen are insane. I fear if I lock myself into a 2 year contract, when such a huge leap in graphics tech is just around the corner, I may kick myself if I buy a phone now. And I always seem to miss the "next big leap" by a few months whenever I renew. I got my last phone just before Droids came out.
So my question is do any of you that have some better knowledge, on the mobile gaming scene, and have any advice on what to wait for, etc? I like simple games like angry birds and ****, but some of these new graphics games like Shadowgun and Riptide HD seem like a lot of fun too for longer sessions, and I know current gen can play it, but it makes me wonder what Tegra 3 will be able to pull off, or if it is just a bunch of worthless hyped tech demos. Do you think this is gonna take off and have lots of next gen games?
