23 console games on the iPhone

A look at 26 different titles on the iPhone that gamers would consider "real" video games. Familiar franchises and known names that are a little more than the usual casual fare

15 NBA Live



NBA Live is generally considered to be the best among the iPhone ports of Electronic Arts' sports games, and for good reason. A simple gesture-based control scheme that revolves around only a virtual stick and two buttons allows for full control of players on the court; pump fakes, passes, blocking, stealing, and even a variety of dunks are possible through a simple flick of a finger. Console veterans will probably find that this iPhone version of their favorite basketball simulator won't completely replace the console version, but EA has probably created the best game possible considering the limitations of the iPhone hardware. The inclusion of classic players like Magic Johnson and Larry Bird only serves to make the App Store variant of this basketball series all the more enticing.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
