According to a recent Gartner study (More Growth Ahead for Mobile Gaming), mobile gaming revenues in North America will reach $1.7 billion in 2011, up from $716.9 million in 2007.

Once again North America trails Europe and Asia in terms of mobile capability and this has dampened progress.

Nick Ingelbrecht of Gartner said, "One of the things driving mobile gaming in developed markets is the availability of faster processors in mobile devices, which enable faster response times, 3-D graphics and advanced sound capabilities, as well as less-expensive and bigger storage capabilities for memory-intensive games. At the same time, simple stripped-down games that capitalize on location-awareness and personal interaction are interesting for aficionados."
