GDC MobileAnssi Vanjoki, Executive Vice President of Nokia's Markets division, will delve into how mobile games are playing a key role in the company's move into the services market in a keynote address at this year's Game Developers Conference Mobile (GDC Mobile), being held February 18-19 in San Francisco. Titled "Play with Anybody Everywhere - Context, the New Paradigm for Game Play," Vanjoki's keynote will address how Nokia's N-Gage made-for-mobile games service brings value for the games industry and how the company plans to accomplish connecting people through play. With an installed base of millions of N-Gage compatible Nokia devices, mobile games play a strategic role in the company's growth in the service market. As executive vice president of Nokia's newly formed Markets unit, Vanjoki is responsible for sales, marketing, manufacturing and logistics of all Nokia products and services. Vanjoki has held several senior executive positions throughout his distinguished career with the company, including serving as Executive Vice President and General Manager of the company's Multimedia division, with overall responsibility for the Nokia Nseries multimedia computer device fleet and Nokia services. Vanjoki is a member of the Nokia Group Executive Board, a position he's held since 1998. GDC Mobile 2008 will provide mobile game developers from around the globe the opportunity to debate the future of the medium with executives from leading mobile network operators, advanced technology providers, handset manufacturers, and major console game publishers. Held in conjunction with the Game Developers Conference, GDC Mobile 2008 will offer in-depth technical and business oriented mobile game development sessions supported by research and market analysis for every region in the world. "Bringing people together on a common platform works for the PC, consoles, and the web browser, and Nokia is well-positioned to bring a similar level of platform ubiquity to mobile games," said Jamil Moledina, executive director, Game Developers Conference. "Giving developers the chance to create community experiences on any device is a key goal of the GDC overall, and so we are pleased to host Vanjoki's vision for empowering our attendees."
