Smart phones for Gaming
Sony Ericsson’s ran a Super Bowl ad for the Playstation phone - Xperia Play.

Steve Ballmer Microsoft talked about extending the XBOX experience to the Windows Mobile 7 phones at CES.

I believe that we will be seeing more mobile devices that, besides performing the core functions (phone, e-mail, photo / video, etc.) extremely well, will be tuned to a specific use-case: gamers, bloggers, sales persons, accountants, senior citizens, etc. It is very hard to find the right set of mobile applications that best service a function. Further, these applications are not integrated to work seamlessly. I expect a whole slew of devices built (or pre-configured) to enhance the productivity or the experience of a particular user group.
