Sony Ericsson F305

leave a comment »

Sony recently announced the launch of a dedicated gaming handset, the F305.

The new handset has a control pad similar to those found on games consoles, and also contains a motion sensor that reacts to hand gestures, much like Nintendo’s Wii.

Games such as Bass Fishing, in which the phone responds to a swooping gesture as the player casts a fishing line, and bowling, where players make an underarm movement as they pretend to bowl a ball down an alley, are among those that will be offered for download from the internet.

According to Electronic Arts, the world’s largest publisher of mobile games, more than 25 per cent of people now play games on their phone, though a much small percentage – between 5 and 10 per cent – are willing to pay for the experience, preferring pre-installed games instead.

In Europe there were more than 100 million paid downloads of games in Europe last year, on average costing between 2 and 10 pound.
