Most smartphones and tablets can be used, among other purposes, to play games just as regular handheld game consoles. You can even buy special adapters like Ion iCade, Moga Mobile or the Brick Joystick that allow you to use physical controls while playing games,
But how many handheld dedicated game consoles you have seen to allow you place calls? I bet not many…
The iReadyGo Much i5 is a dedicated portable console which runs on Android and allows not only to be used as a handheld game station but also to place and receive calls and do all the other things a regular Android smartphone can do – also check the Wikipad Handheld Game Tablet and the Archos Gamepad.
