As a long-time Palm device loyalist dating back to the original PalmPilot in 1997, I was rather disappointed that the Palm Pre wasn’t able to restore the company to its former glory in the crowded smartphone marketplace now dominated by iPhone and Andriod devices. For 3 years, I stood idly by Palm with the Centro, hoping they would finally release a true iPhone killer, but it never happened and the company was later bought out by HP in April of 2010. When that happened, I knew I was done waiting and it was time to move on.
I drove to my local Sprint store and upgraded to the HTC Evo 4G. My early impressions were great. The beautiful screen is larger than I have ever used before and the touch screen and on-screen keyboard is very responsive. I was blown away at how changes to my contacts list in Gmail would instantly update on my phone and vice versa. As I get acclimated, the form factor of the Evo and all the available apps in the Android marketplace, I began to wonder, are there any good games on Android? What games would you recommend I play?
