[T-Mobile to distribute nGame's Java QuickStart Program in efforts to launch mobile Java gaming throughout Europe. ]
Cambridge -- nGame announces that T-Mobile has selected nGame's Java QuickStart Program as the cornerstone of their launch of mobile Java gaming throughout Europe. The two-year deal sees nGame shipping one hundred and twenty J2ME games, designed for a wide variety of Java-enabled handsets, which T-Mobile will distribute in Austria, Germany and the United Kingdom. In addition, T-Mobile will also be using nGame's Java Games Store platform WOTAN as their content delivery platform at launch in the UK.
"nGame has consistently been a leader in the offering of innovative services for the wireless Internet and are committed to providing the best micro-java games and entertainments to users all over the world," said nGame CEO, John Brimacombe. "We are extremely excited to be working with T-Mobile on this project and delighted that they are launching their micro-Java service primarily with nGame titles. We are working with developers based throughout the world -- the UK, America, India, and Korea, to name but a few -- and this deal enables us to bring the best of their games, as well as our own titles, to both European and North American consumers. This is by far the largest and most significant content deal yet seen anywhere in the mobile games industry."
"WOTAN is nGame's next generation enterprise level platform to deliver mobile entertainment content," said nGame CTO, Dave Lloyd. "We are very pleased that this will be the first ever-live deployment of a vending machine for micro-java games. nGame QuickStart is as simple to use as a real-world vending machine, making the dispensing of Java games simple, easy and immediate. We are extremely pleased to have nGame QuickStart received so well, and delighted that T-Mobile users will be the first to benefit from this experience. We look forward to exploring how our expertise and technology can help T-Mobile offer greater value, entertainment, and enjoyment to their customers worldwide."
