Is the iPhone a Legit Gaming Handheld?

Hmm, I have no iPhone, (I would LOVE one) but it seems that iPhone handles games and apps perfectly, one could say, in theory, it could be whatever the Amiga was listed under.

Depends on who you are speaking with. Some people would immediately put their iPhones/iPods on the same level as the DS or PSP. Some would say that it's a silly platform that can only play mini games. Regardless if it's a gaming handheld, Apple is getting a crap load of money. So in a way, it's a handheld but it still lacks the depth that most handheld games have except in the case of a few games (Zenonia for example).
