Apple users generate "remarkable volume of downloads"
6 March 2009 — 2:00 PM
Gamers are turning to the latest phones from Apple to get new mobile titles, it has been suggested.
According to a new report from Juniper Research, the manufacturer has seen a "remarkable volume of downloads" from its online App Store, where people can get the most recent games, as well as other software.
The group honoured Apple with a Gold Award for its iPhone 3G and web-based shop - which may inspire some to recycle used mobiles to fund the purchase of the device.
Dr Windsor Holden, report author and awards panel judge, said: "Apple has provided an innovative device which enables developers to create smooth, compelling, visually attractive games for the mobile user."
He added the business applications of the phone also meant it was worthy of consideration for professionals.
The Apple iPhone 3G is available on the latest contracts from O2, including the network's pay-as-you-go packages.
