I think multiplayer turn-based games like Draw Something are great for what they provide. They are legitimately multiplayer as you say and don't "abuse" social networks for the claim of multiplayer. They are totally valid, and a great type of game that, like you mentioned, works great with the limitations of a mobile platform. I brought up Draw Something not to bash on it (perhaps my wording / placement was wrong in the way I initially stated it), but rather to make a comparison to real-time synchronous games.
There is a big distinction between turn-based games and synchronous games, so much so that they deservingly should be classified differently. I think they're great, I play tons of turn-based multiplayer games (both on my phone and computer), and they definitely bring a uniqueness to the table. I just think something more can be done with synchronous games.
I always find it slightly ironic that a platform designed to connect people, at times seems so disconnected.
