    I agree. I have the ipod touch and the games on Apples App market are far superior to anything that is currently on Android market. There is no contest here.

    Disagree.

    Download an emulator/rom combination and you will be enlightened. No mobile game on any device (Whether iPhone related or not) can ever truly touch the significance of these vintage classic games (Except maybe Quake/or an upcoming similar natured FPS).

    Test it out for yourself...from RPGs to adventure to sports etc etc etc....

    One of the reasons iPhone games are better is because you have 8gigs or more of memory/storage to run your apps from. Google is working on a solution to be able to run apps from the SD card, when that happens you will see better games for the droid. As developers will be able to make larger files with their games. As it stands it is hard to make a good game with great graphics and keep it small enough to run on the droids internal memory. Look at some of games file size for the iphone/itouch. They are huge compared to games availble on the droid.

    I haven't really played any graphically intense games for the DROID just yet, but I did play several games on the 3G whilst I was among the AT&T damned. First and foremost among those was the game Pocket God.

    Though fun, this game proved to be the most hardware-taxing of all games I'd played, and I'll be damned if it didn't take it a long time to load. Once loaded though, you're right: it was pretty snappy, and there was hardly any lag.

    No, it didn't "force close", but it gave me something worse than that: just... closing. At least the Force Close boxes tell me that the app has indeed crashed, whereas the iPhone's constantly quick and concise closing of an app just left me wondering what the hell happened.

    And that happened a lot.

    Give Android a bit more time. The iPhone has been around for years, something that Android can only now start bragging about (and by that, I mean that it's only been recently become years, plural).

    Something I was considering this morning is that the really the only phone with 2.0 installed. So currently there are no games developed that support all that the hardware has to offer. def. looking forward to seeing what this phone is capable of.

    It reminds me a bit of when the xbox first came out. Not many games were available for the machine that took advantage of the full capacity that console could deliver on.

    If you guys took half a second to read the article I posted you would read that I found the news about gameloft being back in the Android game.

    GameLoft has announced that it will be releasing mobile games in high def. for certain android devices. The Droid and the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 to be more specific.

    Robo Defence: With all towers upgraded and going off esp. in the upper levels, the game lags.

    Abduction: The cow lags and stutters about half way up to the goal.

    Doom: Forget about it. total crap.

    My point exactly.

    People go and rag on the DROID for falling short of iPhone status and what have you. Not being able to compete with the number of apps, et cetera, and so forth.

    But again, people have to realize that Android is still a technology in its infancy.

    The original iPhone was released on June 29, 2007. The 3G rolled out a year later, and then the 3GS another year, still.

    Though the DROID isn't by any stretch the first Android device, as that distinct honor is held by the HTC Dream, which was released October 22, 2008.

    So what people need to do is quit complaining about what the DROID can't do, and take a serious look at the fact that for a platform that's only been a real serious contender for a single year (vice the original multiple years I pointed out earlier), Android is leaps and bounds ahead of the iPhone.

    That being said, I say we discuss all of DROID's shortcomings when it's been around as long as the iPhone has.
