Mobile gaming is a rising star in Indias fast-growing wireless business. Gaming is a key element in operators and content developers strategies to develop new, high-value wireless revenue streams, beyond basic voice services and simple text messaging. Propelled by end-user demand, gaming is growing quickly as an increasing number of Indian consumers take advantage of wireless mobility to enjoy entertainment on the go.
