    Usually when we hear about Android Market and the iPhone App Store we hear about comparisons in terms of # of applications. But what about games? Surely games fit under the app umbrella to which they refer, but it’s also clear that games have a HUGE and yet unmet potential on mobile devices. It [...]

    Let's hope so. I can't imagine it would be on Blackberry. Palm seems equally unlikely. Both because of the form factor. I can't imagine playing UT3 on those screens.

    That leaves WinMo and Android.

    Tough call. WinMo Clearly has the marketshare, but Android is the rising star with potentially more gamers.

    Hmm.

    I doubt this. Android would either have to make phones with bigger internal memory or allow users to save games on the SD card. The game files would be like 200 MBs

    This is incorrect.

    Android allows data to be saved on the SD card. The app itself wont be 200MB, and it could download any textures it needs and put them on the SD card.

    This would not be a limitation at all.
