December 13, 2006, Victoria, Canada: MobileRated now offers free mobile phone games to over 1000 different and unique mobile devices (handsets, PDAs, and smart phones). Owners of every supported device can find free games suitable for their phone's make and model.
Support varies by mobile phone as each mobile phone has its own characteristics, features, functionality, and defects. Factors like screen size, memory, and processor speed can likewise play a role. "Not all games are suitable for all phones," said Richard Mosher, President and CEO. "Game developers must choose which mobile phones to support and usually make custom versions for different handsets. This is quite a process and an on-going problem for developers. Therefore, less popular handsets have fewer games available to them. That makes our milestone of offering free mobile phone games for over 1000 devices all the more gratifying and rewarding."
Intense competition between mobile phone manufacturers means new mobile phone models are rolled out with increasing frequency. Phones are designed for various market segments and are differentiated with features, ergonomics, and - most importantly - style. The stakes are high. Average consumers replace phones in under three years. Over 1 billion handsets are expected to be sold in 2009 alone.
Finding games for phones only a couple of years old can be difficult, especially if the phone is a less popular model. Carrier sites sell games promoting the latest handsets and restrictions on deck size mean only so many games can be sold. MobileRated offers hundreds of free mobile phone games, providing a choice selection for everyone, including those with older model phones. Everything from classic card and arcade games to modern casual puzzle games to high-intensity action games are available - for free.
