Big bucks in mobile phone gaming?

Posted by David Hunter at 9:39 AM ET.

Yet another consultant report of riches to be had in games for cell phones:

Mobile gaming sales will generate $7.2bn a year worldwide by 2011, growing from the $2.4bn sold in 2006.

According to Informa, which made this forecast, only five per cent of mobile phone users actually download games.

Informa predicts that Asia Pacific, which dominates mobile games sales, will account for nearly half the industry by 2011. It also says the USA is rapidly becoming the largest single-country market, thanks to its single language and small number of operators – factors which could constrain growth in Europe.

More by following the link. Microsoft does have plans in this area (see also [1]).
