Samsung prototype with Windows Phone 7 shows off its gaming prowess
Mobile gaming is surely to become an area that's proving to be more profitable and even challenging for some of the normal heavy hitters in the mobile console market. Windows Phone 7 may be one of the newest platforms to hit the market, but seeing that they're being backed by a company known for its expertise in the gaming world, Windows Phone 7 is looking to showcase its gaming prowess to make it a clear contender in the mobile space. During Microsoft's ReMix10 conference held in France, there was a Samsung prototype handset with Windows  Phone 7 that was showing off its power thanks to the Twin Blades game. What's interesting to point out is that it looks pretty good so far with some smooth game play and that you have to consider the fact that it took one employee a mere 2 weeks to convert the XBOX Live game onto the handset with almost 90 percent of the code being identical. Although the game is currently available on the iPhone and through XBOX Live, it goes to show that Windows Phone 7 handsets with its high-end specs can compete in the gaming market as well.

Mobile gaming is just now taking off in America, whereas in Japan, mobile gaming has been a big thing for ages. However, as we see over there, mobile gaming hasn't taken over portable gaming for a few reasons: 1) Better graphics 2) An actual D-Pad 3) More titles released monthly 4) Downloadable titles of more advanced titles While mobile gaming is changing the tide of portable gaming, it doesn't mean Nintendo or Sony will lose their foot hold in the marketplace.

You could be correct, except NINENTDO sees APPLE as its competition now, and not SONY and MICROSFT, and that is straight from the mouth of NINTENDO's CEO.

they really should design a phone with a capacity area (like palm pre plus) at the top of the screen. That way, you can use the physical buttons at the bottom of the screen and a capacity area to use as a d-pad to play the game without your fingers being in the way....but Palm might have an IP on that idea...

Did you ever think to do things backwards? Sony just makes the PSP into a phone, POW!
