Mobile Internet devices such as PDA’s and smart phones are gaining popularity around the world. I see more than a dozen variety of portable Internet gadget on a walk around shopping malls.
Smart phones has become a portable PC alternative for many active people. A smartphone device could be used for usual business productivity such as presentation, communication, but it could also be used for leisure with online gaming on the go.
Smart phones are lightweight portable electronic device with a built-in display and speakers. It has a touch screen for input and/or a miniature keyboard which acts as games controls. The pocket-sized smartphone computing device typically makes it an ideal gaming device. The smart phone has similar popular feature to a handheld game console like Sony’s PSP or Nintendo’s DS which allows people to carry them and play them at any time or place.
Major smart-phone brands like RIM’s Blackberry, Apple’s iPhone, Samsung’s Galaxy, LG’s Android, and many others are having online game applications available on their market place. Popular card games such as poker are even available online. So, one will never miss playing online poker games at pokerstars through their smartphones. There are strict anti-gambling laws, but the legislation of poker is unambiguous. Thus, in countries like United States, United Kingdom, and those on European continent such as France online poker are legal.
Handy smart phone feature for playing online games are slide out keyboard which is available on Blackberry Torch. It a great selling point for players who would like to chat while playing. Chat would be difficult to do with an iPhone during game play, but is not impossible.
Another feature to look on a smartphone would be the speed in which favorite online poker rooms are accessed. This would not be an issue with LG Optimus 2x, which comes with dual-core Tegra 2 processor, but would certainly be for some smart phones. Smart phones that could rival the speed of some of the fastest PC and other mobile gadgets are good for playing online poker games.
Anyone who owns a Blackberry, iPhone, Galaxy S, LG Star, and many other brands could definitely enjoy poker online or any other games that can be played over a mobile device.
