Top three mobile application threats

Nintendo will soon allow mobile phone users to while away the idle moments between 'I'm on the train now' calls with a little videogame play. The Great Satan of Cartoon Italian Plumbers is working on a handset that has a built in Gameboy Color handheld console. Right now, Nokia owners can waste time on Memory (find matching pictures on a grid), Logic (aka Mastermind) and Trouser Snake (claim your cellphone has more features than everyone else's), but none are quite up to console quality. Neither is the Gameboy, really, but it does at least have a wide variety of titles behind it - so you can expect a massive Tetris revival as soon as the phone ships. Gameboy also has Pocket Monster - it says here - as will the new phone, which will allow owners of said beasties to swap them between handset courtesy of the next-generation IMT-2000 telecoms standard. The cellphone-cum-Gameboy is set to ship in Japan in 2001. ®
