“The hottest topic in Barcelona was mobile video and mobile TV. Everyone is excited about delivering music videos, short films and TV news to mobile phones.” said Lancelet. “What excites ME about that is that any phone capable of handling video multimedia is also great for playing slot machines and that means more players coming on board.”
Every year, mobile phones get smarter and more capable of playing graphically rich games.
“At 3GSM, all the new phones the handset manufacturers were showing off had higher display resolution — 240 x 320 is becoming the standard,” said Lancelet. “That’s just what you want for mobile games like our slot machines and video poker games.”
No matter how cool phones get, or how many new real-money games providers like Slotland.com/mobile develop, one barrier to mobile gambling is still the cost of data transfer. Visiting a lot of WAP sites on your phone’s Internet browser can add up. Fortunately, Lancelet observed a trend that will improve that too.
“It seems more GSM network operators are offering flat rate wireless data tariffs,” observed Lancelet. “That’s good news for the mobile gambler too!”
