Suffice to say there's plenty to talk about: 2010 is already shaping up to be a landmark year in the mobile games market.
The mobile games sector has been turned upside down by the phenomenal success of Apple's iPhone and App Store, which appears to have opened the flood gates for digital mobile content and irrevocably proved the lucrative potential of mobile games, says Steel Media managing director Chris James.
Now, with the rest of the industry clamouring to catch up with new technology and hardware, the next 12 months should prove to be the most exciting yet for existing and new players alike.
