Today's other main feature from Gamasutra is Brandon Sheffield's wrap-up of this week's CTIA mobile entertainment show held in San Francisco. As Sheffield notes in his introduction to the show, which included a presence from some of the more notable developers and publishers in the mobile game market, including Jamdat (Doom RPG), Gameloft (War Of The Worlds), and I-Play (Skipping Stone): "The CTIA Wireless IT & Entertainment convention, held in San Francisco’s Moscone West conference hall, which operated from September 27-29, is not typically the biggest space for games. But as the mobile market increases, the mobile entertainment and games industries are increasingly starting to converge at this unique mobile technology-centric event. With keynote talks from important industry figures such as Edgar Bronfman, Jr., Chairman & CEO of Warner Music Group, Sean Maloney, Executive Vice President & General Manager, Mobility Group for Intel, and noted Electronic Arts and 3DO founder Trip Hawkins (now with Digital Chocolate), the show is gradually increasing its scope. Though games did not command a prominent floor presence at the show, many major and up-and-coming players were represented at the event, largely located in the ‘M-tertainment & Gaming’ section."
