Games on phones in India

Mobile gaming is taking off, as "one of the fastest-growing activities among the tech-savvy in India, the BBC reports. Citing research from market researchers In-Stat/MDR, the piece says India's mobile gaming market will be $26 million by the end of this year and is expected to reach $336 million by 2009 (globally, 220 million people will be playing games on phones by then). In India, the number of cell-phone users grew by 1.4 million in October alone - up to 44.9 million and surpassing the use of fixed phone lines. The growth is attributed to India's large under-25 population. All this spells jobs for publishers, developers, animators, musicians, and content providers. "Currently, India has six big games developers and four mobile operators that offer games to their subscribers," the BBC adds.
