MORE after the break

There is a lot of news coming out of the mobile gaming space today because of the Game Developer’s Conference going on in California.

This move by Motorola Mobility is an interesting move as more hardware companies are investing, purchasing or partnering with developers.  The latest, Qualcomm, announced Tuesday that they were teaming with GameLoft to ensure game compatibility.  Motorola Mobility could be seeking maximum optimization as well with Moblyng games as well as have a direct channel via pre-installed apps, to get Moblyng games onto more phones.
