Buy an LG Mobile Phone and it could be chocolate filled, or at least filled with content from Digital Chocolate. The mobile video game developer has signed a deal with LG Mobile Phone to make games available, and pre-loaded on mobile handsets.
Digital Chocolate was launched Trip Hawkins, who had previously founded Electronic Arts, as well as the 3DO game console, and later software development firm. LG Mobile Phones, according to Strategy Analytic’s Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, shipped more than 24 million handsets in the U.S. in 2006 and captured the number one spot in WCDMA market in the same year. So if LG sales keep up, it looks like Digital Chocolate could be in a lot of hands this year! Good move Trip!
