Orange named top mobile games operator

Mobile company owns a market share of 23 per cent according to Chart-Track and ELSPA

Orange has been named the number one mobile gaming operator in 2008, with a market share of 23 per cent for downloads and 25 per cent for revenues, according to figures released by ELSPA and Chart-Track.

Sonic the Hedgehog and Monopoly were the most popular titles, while over 30 per cent of Orange's gaming revenues came from consumer purchases of pre-installed demos on its phones.

"We're delighted with taking the top spot for mobile gaming in 2008 and are already making great strides to make sure we stay there in 2009," commented Neil Holroyd, head of games and gambling at Orange UK.

"We're making more enhancements to our embedded games, and giving our Orange World gaming channel a new look and feel - customers can look forward to a slicker experience and improved graphics."
