Sound Off! Handheld or SmartPhone Gaming?

Which mobile gaming platform do you prefer?

The standalone handheld that's optimized for, and specializes, in gameplay?

The smartphone with installed games that play on a device you're probably already carrying?

As much as I love my iPhone and the convenience of a device that you always have with you, I still prefer my son's PSP and Nintendo 3DS for mobile gaming. The touch screen and accelerometer interface works well for some games, like Angry Birds or even Civilization Revolution. However, it just feels unnatural for other genres, like action games. I tried to play the iPad port of Rainbow Six, one of my favorite games of all time, and it was just an exercise in frustration.

Maybe I'll get a 3DS of my own someday...
