all cellular devices fail as a gaming device, because it is made to be a phone.

if you want a phone that is great at games, you need to make a portable gaming system and give it the ability to send/recieve calls.

No hardware buttons is my only reason why it fails as a "true" gaming device. It does have some decent games though. Like that bass fishing one. Really fun.

While not the primary reason to own one, its ability to play games is a good feature. The quality of titles is pretty good and those looking to unwind with a quick game here and there will enjoy it. It's a decent gaming platform for free and cheap downloadable games, for those looking to play a game at leisure. Simple, fun and cheap entertainment on the go to pass some time when bored is what it's about. So I don't think it fails, it just caters to a different segment. They have quietly crept into the gaming arena and can only see them expanding their focus. I(console) in the future?
