Combined with valuable interactive services and mobile commerce capabilities, the Serious Fun Engine offers wireless carriers and dot-com content providers a well-formed entertainment engine that can be customized to fit customers' needs.
"Mobile entertainment services are rapidly emerging as the next killer application for the mobile environment," said Patrick Boyle, president and CEO of MobileEngines, Inc. "However, the challenge for content providers and carriers alike, is bringing these services together into easy to navigate environments. Our partnerships with these leading Internet entertainment brands are perfect examples of how best-of-breed content and services can be aggregated to offer an extremely robust mobile entertainment service."
