Ozura Mobile has announced today that, together with the Indian-based Goldfinch Mobile Solutions, it will launch a new "tournament based mobile gaming community portal" for Indian users.
Leveraging on Ozura's FunlogiX platform, the upcoming portal will be brought by Goldfinch to lots of telecom operators from across India (including GSM, CDMA and Fixed Line carriers).
The Indian portal will allow the creation of mobile game tournaments, communities, clubs, forums and prize-based competitions. Moreover, it will probably host all of Ozura's current mobile titles, including Fishy Fishee
, Beijing Dreams
, Counter Smash
, Monkey King, 1943 SkyWar, Hello Kitty's Birthday Surprise, Desert Racer, Robowars, Siege Craft, Peng the Guin, Eggz, Spot Check, R.A.T.S., Angry Lion, Pirates Smash Down, Oriental Vegas Jackpot, The Lake Monster, Magma Run and so on.
Although a huge number of mobile games are already downloaded daily in India (about 100,000), the country is expected to further expand its gaming needs, as it's one of the world's fastest growing mobile markets – this being the main reason why Ozura intends to promote its games and services across India.
"We are elated to be working with Goldfinch Mobile Solutions," says H.E. Mah, vice president of marketing at Ozura. "Based on the optimistic statistic, we are confident that through this partnership we will effectively strengthen Ozura's position as Asia's largest platform provider in the mobile value added services industry."
Newton Bubber, Goldfinch's chief executive officer, further added, "Mobile gaming is a rising star in India's fast-growing wireless business; the growth of this market sector has attracted publishers, developers, animators, musicians, and content providers, and is also stimulating the development of innovative business models. Ozura's products have been deployed successfully with South East based operators and we look forward to adding value and revenue to Indian operators too."
No details yet on when exactly the new Ozura-Goldfinch portal will be available for Indian mobile gamers, but it shouldn't be too long before this happens.
