Mobile gaming could be set for a change in the near future, one expert has suggested.

In an interview with gigaom this week, industry specialist Robin Boyar explained that the sector had come on a great deal since five years ago, but the level of innovation was likely to continue.

She agreed that features like Wi-Fi and GPS location could contribute to a platform that is more complex, but said that much of these developments could be targeted at the female market.

"Women are actually playing mobile games slightly less than men, but women have just as many handsets," she concluded. "I think there's a real opportunity for developers to come out and make content that's more specific to women."

Pocket Gamer recently listed its five favourite gaming titles for the Nokia N-Gage platform that have emerged so far this year - with Dance Fabulous and Age of Empires 3 among those mentioned.
