Phone handsets get Nintendo-style games capabilities

In the past couple of weeks wireless technology developer TTPCom has been touring companies demonstrating one of the most intensely desirable mobile phone handsets – a silver and blue demo unit that you’ll never be able to buy (not exactly, anyway), but that the company hopes will fire the imagination of handset manufacturers and help trigger the mobile phone games revolution. The basic premise is simple enough, and not exactly rocket science. Nintendo’s Game Boy is ARM-powered, large numbers of mobile phones are powered by ARM chips, so how come mobile phones don’t run games of Game Boy class? As The Register observed to TTPCom, if its techies didn’t know the answer to that question before they even asked it, then the company was in big trouble. But more properly, the development was about evolving handsets so they could function as games consoles.
