A link for my friends with iPhones and iPod Touches:
For many gamers, the iPhone is the first mobile platform with videogames that are actually worth playing. The gadget’s winning combination of touchscreen and motion controls means games can be much more intuitive and fun than if you were trying to play with a regular phone’s tiny keypad.
Perhaps more importantly, Apple’s unique approach to game distribution — allowing anyone to produce and sell games through iTunes for a nominal fee — has caused the App Store to virtually explode with software. Apple has sold more than 20 million iPhones, plus countless more iPod Touch music players, giving the devices enormous reach as a gaming platform.
