As anyone who has followed the iPhone knows, mobile phones are the future of gaming. People always have their cell phones on them, and mobile gaming is a cheap and easy way to ward off boredom at the office and a thousand other places. Sony Ericsson has taken this new fact of the industry to heart, and they've come out with what might be the first smartphone designed purely for gaming.

Let's get specs out of the way. The Yari has a 5 megapixel camera, integral Google search, the Access Netfront web browser, picture messaging, IM support, YouTube support, GPS, 3D gaming support, and a 2.4” QVGA screen. The Yari will hit stores in Q4 2009, and no pricing information has been released as of yet.

Now, here's what makes the Yari special. Sony Ericsson is very proud of their new gesture gaming technology, which allows the Yari to pick up on your physical movements without you needing to touch the phone. This means that the Yari is capable of playing a lot of Wii-like exercise games, just for starters. The Yari also comes loaded with a bunch of non-gesture based games, and the capability to run graphically intensive 3D mobile games.


The Yari is a neat looking little smartphone, and it might just be the gadget that ends up saving Sony Ericsson. By coming out with the first dedicated gaming smartphone Ericsson has set up shop in a potentially lucrative niche. We'll know whether or not it's going to pay off when the 2009 holiday season rolls around.
