Astraware announces additional smartphone platform support

BUDAPEST, Hungary/KEELE, Staffordshire, UK – November 29th, 2007 – Astraware®, currently participating in the UIQ Fast Track event in Budapest, is excited to announce support for an additional mobile software platform.

In the first quarter of 2008 a selection of Astraware’s own games and popular licensed titles will be released for the Symbian® UIQ® platform.

“The whole Astraware team is excited to be supporting such a progressive and media-rich platform,” said John Phillips, Astraware’s Vice President of Business Development. “UIQ continues to improve the user experience with every release of their platform, and we are sure that our games will engage the user as much as the UIQ platform engages developers.”

Astraware has been working on adding Symbian to its list of supported platforms for some time and now has several games in the pipeline. Using their expertise in touchscreen and non-touchscreen control methods, Astraware’s games will support both touchscreen UIQ devices like the Sony Ericsson P1i and non-touchscreen handsets such as Motorola’s highly acclaimed multimedia phone, the Z8.

“Astraware’s portfolio of quality games and applications is impressive, and we are happy to see them porting more and more great titles to the UIQ platform,” commented Naresh Chouhan, Head of Developer Programs at UIQ Technology. “This will broaden UIQ phone users’ choice of add-on software, of course, but it will also lead the way for other mobile software companies to see and grasp the opportunities in UIQ.”
