|As online casino operators look to expand their reach beyond the wired world, the most obvious new pasture is probably sitting right in your pocket. That’s right- your mobile phone is already able to help you place a bet. |
But the question is not whether your phone can do it…it’s a question of you doing it. With WAP’s spectacular failure, the hope for complex applications on the mobile phone nearly vanished. But now there is a resurgence of hope for mobile applications now that GPRS and 3G are becoming widely available, and JAVA enabled phones are becoming the norm. Phones like the Ericsson P800 and the O2/T-Mobile XDA are readily suited for mobile gaming as their screens are large and touch sensitive…if they lead the way to hybrid phone/PDA devices the likelihood for mobile gaming’s success sharply rises.
In the mean time, you’ll be pleased to know that mobile gaming is available- and it’s only you the gambler that is holding back its take up.
