Nokia simplifies creation of online gaming communities for Java(TM) technology games

Nokia’s SNAP Mobile offers a full-featured turnkey solution that builds on the social aspects of mobile gaming
San Jose, CA, USA – Nokia, the leader in mobile communications, announced today the launch of a business solution that enables operators and publishers to create online communities for mobile Java games in days, rather than months. Operators who choose SNAP Mobile’s Starter Kit or Standard Package can have their users hosted on the SNAP Mobile Community, a full-featured, generic website, which creates an online gaming community almost instantly.
SNAP Mobile offers a full-featured, turnkey gaming community infrastructure that connects mobile gamers via Nokia’s SNAP Mobile gaming platform. Building on the inherent social aspects of mobile phones, these communities can be accessed by gamers’ PC web browsers and internet-enabled phones.
“Mobile technology was born out of the fact that people are social by nature and demand the ability to communicate outside of their offices and family rooms,” said Lisa Waits, Head of Nokia SNAP Mobile.? “We asked why shouldn’t mobile gaming offer the same and we’re answering with our plug and play community solution for operators and publishers that will deliver a seamless, social experience for gamers.”

In-game, players will have their own unique user identities, as well as features such as friend lists, presence, rankings, chat and instant messaging. Out-of-game, users will not only have the ability to maintain their unique user identities and view rankings, but will also have at their disposal news and events, message boards, and featured gamepages.
In addition to being a win for mobile gamers, SNAP Mobile provides operators and publishers with a highly effective, low-cost way opportunity to increase online usage and downloadable game sales.
“At the heart of our commitment to offering online communities was the requirement that this offering be easy to implement,” continued Waits. “We want to bring long-term solutions and easy to use technology to a broad base of players in the mobile content market. The result is happy operators and publishers as well as ecstatic, connected gamers.”
Nokia’s SNAP Mobile is the ideal hosted solution for operators who want to create a gaming community site quickly, with no configuration hassles or up-front costs. Operators choosing SNAP Mobile’s Premium Package provides a community website that can be fully customized to suit the operator’s needs. A generic version is also available for more rapid deployment.
