There are lots of games available for the Apple iPhone and the prices are more competitive than what you will find for the DS and PSP mobile gaming devices. One of the recent games launched and then updated for the iPhone is Cronk. Cronk is a caveman trying to save his village by throwing and matching up three boulders in a row. I have played a comparable game on my T-Mobile G1 (Bonsai Blast) and Windows Mobile devices (Astraware Zuma) and think Cronk is an enjoyable game.
BlueAnt has been making high quality Bluetooth headsets for a few years and is now testing the waters with a wired stereo headset. They have a real winner on their hands with the BlueAnt Embrace headphones as you can see in my review.
One of the most popular things to do while running or working out is listen to your music collection. With the Tiger Eyes or Endorphin earphones you can do that and sweat as much as you want since they both have lifetime warranties on sweat. The Tiger Eyes are optimized for the iPhone and let you handle calls and listen to music. The Endorphin is designed for the serious athlete who wants some rocking headphones.
DataViz has developed their Documents To Go products for the BlackBerry, Symbian, Windows Mobile, Palm, and Google Android products and just took the lead in Office document support for the iPhone. Documents To Go with Exchange Attachments not only gives you support for Word documents, but lets you receive and send attachments through your Exchange server. A free update with Excel support is also coming soon. DataViz has optimized the controls and functions for the iPhone and delivers a fantastic product that is well worth the small price.

I decided to test out some of the newest devices and put together an image gallery and video below from the HTC Amaze 4G, Apple iPhone 4S, Nokia N8 Symbian device, and Nokia N9 MeeGo device. There are other contenders, but these four are representative of the latest and greatest available today.
