Gaming on my first android phone

The start of a new era - the smart phone era.
I have FINALLY bought my new android phone - a Samsung Galaxy S (with a super clear LCD) at an absolute bargain! It costs me only $98 after the $100 Singtel voucher incentive for service provider switch (too bad Starhub, your marketing tactics and bad pricing failed to attract me). Got a cheap monthly price plan too after corporate discount.

It is indeed a whole new world of experience. Now my phone is becoming a more important gadget than my computer - I can call it my mini desktop. It is not just useful for calls and SMS; it encompasses so much more! Task alarm, cool games, surfing, reading references, watching videos, listening to music... Brilliant conveniences. Only a bit troublesome to have to keep charging due to the high power consumption. 

I am still trying to get use to Qwerty keypad typing instead of number-pad. The Android Swype is really cool as I can just swipe across the keyboard (via linking alphabets) to type the words. That's another reason, besides the open source app platform, to why I am not getting an iPhone.

One game app that I recommend to install is Angry Birds. It's one big popular game that my colleagues had been crazy about and I finally got to play it now.

It's free and really simple to play; it has got cute graphics and a fun factor that made it as addictive as any PC game. I marveled at the design that used the physics of projectile momentum and life-like kinetic reactions triggered by the catapulting of funny-looking cartoon birds. 

Although, on the flip side, I must admit it got me quite angry and frustrated some times when I couldn't figure out the right angles to shoot in order to get the green pigs. Green pigs? Sounds almost absurd. But it's just too cute and hilarious, especially when it smirks at you when you fail the level. Oh please don't ask me why they are green, I haven't any clue either. 

What's more amazing is they even got the Season versions for it! Bill gates, Steve Job, Mark Zuckerburg... Angry Birds developer might be next to make it rich.

It is a whole new era of mobile gaming coming up... Nintendo, time to give way?
