Gameloft, a cellphone game maker, has announced it will bring its line of mobile games to the BlackBerry in hopes of grabbing a chunk of the device’s expanding market. This means that next time you see someone furiously punching away on their BlackBerry keyboard they might not be sending an all-important message, but well, gaming. Here's more:
“It’s becoming quite common to see people playing games on their BlackBerry,” said Mark Guibert, vice president of corporate marketing for Research in Motion, the company that makes the BlackBerry. “The reality is that the market isn’t split into two binary segments of gamers and non-gamers.”
Gameloft’s games are available for download onto hundreds of other cellphone makes and models. If you're not a Ghost Recon or Pro Football 2007 fan you can opt for the more girlie, but fun Desperate Housewives and brain twister options. Hey, there's even a Paris Hilton option. Game on!
