Wireless entertainment publisher Jamdat Mobile has announced a new addition to its board of directors, with eBay chief financial officer Rajiv Dutta set to join the firm after it completes its planned IPO.

Dutta currently oversees financial planning, investor relations and finance support for all of eBay's business operations, a key role at the company which is considered to be one of the most successful online businesses in the world.
