NEW YORK - Forget the PlayStation Portable and ditch that GameBoy.
Kids might be pining for those hot portable gaming systems now, but
the real future of mobile gaming could already be in their pocket.

Today's kids are mobile experts, utterly comfortable with tiny screens
and capable of typing with their thumbs faster than many adults can on
a keyboard. They're also huge consumers of wireless phone service, the
fastest growing group of cellular users and the heaviest users of
minutes and data. Pair those characteristics with today's
handsets -- big, bright color screens, on-board memory and high-speed
data connections -- and you've got a recipe for gaming nirvana. Mobile
gaming is taking off, and thanks in part to the influence of kids,
promises to be a boon to wireless vendors.
