Mobile gaming to soar to USD706 million by 2008

28 Jun 2005

China’s mobile gaming market is expected to grow to CNY5.86 billion (USD706 million) by 2008, up from an anticipated CNY1.44 billion this year, driven by the arrival of 3G services in the country and the subsequent rollout of high speed networks. According to research from Beijing-based Analysys International, growth is currently being hampered by problems relating to mobile terminals and a lack of platform integration, but these obstacles should be overcome once 3G gets off the ground.
