Gametanium bringing games-on-demand to Android


What phone is that in the middle? It looks like the ugly child of an iPhone 3GS, a Galaxy S and an LG Optimus 2X

it has the earpiece of a droid x

the chrome shape and edges of an iphone 3gs

a galaxy s notification bar

no idea where they got those ugly buttons from

I love people in here that think they know business and demographics. I'm sure that this will do just fine. It's a great idea assuming of course enough game developers get on board and there are quality products.

It seems that companies/developers see a lot of hope in the future of android, which there are obviously reasons why. But they must see REALLY big things for google tv if they are willing to incorporate gaming into it with other platforms.

The GameTanium service is the only "On Demand" Games service for the Android Platform and for Mobile Phones. We currently have over 100 games and our catalog is always expanding (new games every week).
