Hong Kong-based Artificial Life, Inc. announced their plans to develop new games and applications for Google’s open source mobile platform, Android. Artificial Life, Inc. is a leading provider of award-winning mobile 3G technology and applications. The company anticipates that Android will attract handset manufacturers because of lower costs for the operating system. They expect Android to be especially successful in China due to its Linux base. They are projecting early 2008 for their first round of software.
The emergence of mobile devices with a more open architecture and robust feature set makes our lives easier by giving us the freedom to create games with fewer limitations imposed by the specific devices while, at the same time, reducing production overhead. We will, therefore, support the Google open source initiative by providing new and innovative products.
