Part 1 of a new article on, entitled 'Gaming Gets Going', takes a look at the world of mobile phone gaming, where it's heading,

what's available now and how it all works. Heres a clip:

Now you can get the punters to pay for the privilege of blasting aliens. Will it work? That's as awful a question as "will this movie be a success?". Nobody knows anything, and the dot com bust is a big old finger-wave from history telling us not to believe anything we read. Including (and especially) this piece ;)."
