With technologies like bluetooth, GPS, GRPS, 3G, 4G, cameraphones, smartphones, Symbian, Flash Lite, etc., becoming the norm , game developers are coming up with great game ideas and implementing them.
With GPS and mobile phones paired together street games has become a reality. Check out “Come Out & Play Festival” which will take place in New York City from September 22nd to 24th for a list of mobile games that are available.

Written in Java and an accompanying Windows driver, utilizing the phones BT(bluetooth) capability and camera, a fellow hacker has come up with a great way to add a new funtionality to the Nokia phone in creating a BT mouse.
All is required is a BT-enabled pc or notebook/laptop and Windows OS. There’s also a possibilty of a GPRS connection and an interface for mirroring the PC’s screen on the Nokia’s display.
The possibilties are endless and I believe this application/project will take off since everyone carries their mobile phone with them and people aren’t so keen about notebooks/laptops input devices and this is a perfect match.
