A new study has looked at how handset-based gaming is performing next to other platforms in terms of popularity.
Those recycling mobile phones for a device that is equipped with the latest playable technologies - such as Nokia's N-Gage powered N900 - may be interested to hear the area is doing very well.

Published by Today's Gamers, the study revealed mobile and web-based titles account for 16 per cent of consumers spending in the area in the UK and 23 per cent in the US.
