This year has witnessed the sharp ascent of the Android– a unique software stack for mobile devices complete with an operating system, middleware and key applications. Based on a version of the Linux kernel. Google, the product represents the world’s best selling smartphone platform and has outperformed fierce rivals such as the Apple iPhone and iPad. Many have welcomed the launch of the new device which is already encouraging other developers to challenge the existing Apple-Android ‘duopoly’ with the creation of original operating systems.
Three services currently dominate the European landscape and include the Symbian (run by Nokia) as well as the WebinOS and Mosquito. Nokia insists that it is still working hard to develop the Symbian product and is expected to be the supplier of choice for the lower end of the mobile communications market. Two other Nokia smart phones have also made a splash this year making this one of the most rapidly developing areas of the industry at work today.
Consumers, meanwhile, are hoping that the launch of a range of such devices will offer the general public even greater access to mobile gaming. The price range of existing products has been responsible for excluding individuals with more modest budgets from enjoying online mobile services. It is hoped that the arrival of fresh systems will pave the way for a new generation of online gamers – allowing the industry to boast greater user figures than ever before. Easy to enjoy wherever and whenever players choose, it’s clear that mobile casinos look set to take the gaming world by storm this 2011.
