|Nokia and Microsoft in bed together|
|I hope Nokia has got protection! Well it was no surprise that Nokia had to get a new operating system other than Symbian. When we were developing mobile games, we took a look at it. Very buggy and slow so we stuck with Java for games (for portability not performance). I read that Nokia and Google Android were in advanced talks; however Nokia must have been worried about ceding too much power to the internet giant. Main reason Android is soo popular for games and apps, is that it is easy to develop for. Windows Phone is a big improvement for Microsoft but still on very few handsets. Personally I think that Nokia has more of a branding/marketing issue than their phone OS. Too many handsets, all called N234 something. Hire more marketing people Nokia, not engineers.|
|Games for online advertising|
|Over the next few months, we will be releasing a number of high profile games that will be suitable for sponsorship or custom branding. In general, we wont be making custom games. Each of the games will be themed (e.g. Sports, music, shopping, cooking) and targeted at certain demographics. If you wish to be on the mailing list for these games, contact us and we can send you the product details.|
|Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY|
|Mamma mia, great specs for this gaming phone.
Dedicated gaming keys
Being Flash game developers, we are particularly interested and happy to see that it supports Flash Lite. It has a slide out game pad with a vital digital D pad. Being an Xperia 10 user, the quality of the games is good on it; though touch screen action games really have their limits. Combo moves and the like are off limits. To get Playstation (1) game graphics, the phone features a Qualcomm’s optimized Snapdragon processor with a 1Ghz CPU and embedded Adreno GPU graphics processor. This chip setup deliver smooth 60fps play-back 3D mobile gaming. Sony Ericsson Ireland, we would love to try one out!
