Google giving away free Nexus One & Motorola DROID units to devleopers at GDC
With Palm already going after the gaming market, Android still doesn’t offer games that are polished enough to contend in the vast competitive arena of mobile gaming. Surprisingly, seven out of the ten top paid applications in the Android Market are games – still in its infancy, there is still much needed to help foster its growth. That’s why Google is planning on getting developers on board with creating high quality titles during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco next month. During the two days, Google will provide these motivated developers an opportunity to meet engineers from the Android team and chime in during Q&A sessions. There’s also a nice incentive for these developers who are willing “to celebrate and inspire the mobile and independent game development communities”. Google plans on giving out Free Nexus One and Motorola DROID handsets to “qualified” developers. What better way to get adjusted to the platform with featured flagship handsets – for free not even? In order to qualify, attendees are required to registers for All Access or Tutorials and Summits passes by February 4, 2010.

I'd have to agree that most of the games on the Android market are absolutely generic. One of the only games I've played that seem to have any sort of decent graphics is "armadillo". And the game play it self just sucks anyways.
