Nokia and Electronic Arts announced a mobile collaboration today, where EA will become a major supplier of mobile games to Nokia mobile devices through Nokia Content Discoverer. This new setup will allow mobile users easy access to downloadable content through a collection of shopping mall "stores" on their mobile device.
Once the Content Discoverer begins this holiday season, seven EA titles will be available to download, including Tetris, Tetris Mania, The Sims 2, Doom, FIFA 06, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06, and FIFA Street 2. EA also intends to support Nokia's next generation mobile games platform launching mid-2007 with titles custom-designed for Nokia S60 devices.
