    What mobile gaming needs is a non gimmicky handheld, not more god damn touch screens.
    Actually, thats what actually gaming needs, except without motion stuff, instead of touch screens. Well, i guess the Wii U brings touch screens into consoles too. god help us all indeed.

    "Would you like to check our Android game stock list?"

    "Would you like to preorder that game for your Android?"

    randomly gets hot as well,
    I have a droid 2 GLOBAL, everything is up to date, and its not rooted.

    It's not the OEMs' fault, it's just that Android is a very inefficient OS.
