Digital Chocolate launches DeChoc Cafe

Trip Hawkins betting big on his mobile game philosophy.

From Moconews:

Digital Chocolate has officially launched its DChoc Cafe Series, and claims that carrier launches are underway for more than 100 operators. In addition to the previously announced Nokia Ngage launch it claims games in the series are already available on 3, AT&T and T-Mobile. Future operators include Sprint, Alltel, O2, Telefonica, SFR, Telecom New Zealand, Telstra, Vodafone and Virgin Mobile, and handset manufacturer Sony Ericsson is also mentioned.

It’s a pretty wide-ranging launch but Digital Chocolate has been working on this for a long time, and it covers found Trip Hawkins’ mantra that mobile games should be social and casual—in this case casual games have social results. Whether this will work won’t be known until later…”
