The Future, It Appears, Is Already The Present

I mentioned (actually, an e-mailer mentioned it, not me) last week that a reasonable future was for cell phones to become gaming consoles, with the addition of 1080P video output.

Well, the future is even better than that, and it's barely even in the future. Take a look at this: Ice Cream Sandwich supports USB game controllers and HDMI, turns your phone into full game console.

That certainly doesn't suck.

In short, you could hook up an external gamepad to a USB-to-microUSB adapter on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, connect it to your TV and transform your handset into a fancy portable gaming console.

That may not be incredibly useful at first, but just wait--it will be.
