I heard that Google has released its newest Nexus smartphone and short googling on “nexus iphone” gets me series of threads where Google vs Apple wars are going pretty heated. There’s video reviews that point out how “Nexus obviously is better on this and that feature” and “iFony fanboys” (as some guy commented – heh) shouted back.
Over and over.
I have a really, really basic cell phone. It cost like… I dunno 30 eur? 50 eur at top I’d say. Can’t even remember. I use 2 features of it: (A) phone (aka talk with people) and (B) text messages (aka send text messages to people).
Maybe 3rd one is the calendar that tells me when somebody’s birthday is… but that’s pretty much it.
For game development, I simply haven’t seen much use for smart phones.
I know many game devs have smarty phones (and I’ve mentioned this topic earlier), but now as Nexus was released I started to ponder again: for what would game producers (indie or not) need a smart phone?
