Gravitate and Oven Digital Partner to Create Mobile-to-Mobile Game Applications for the Wireless Internet
Gravitate announced it has reached a partnership agreement with Oven Digital of New York. As partners, the two firms will cooperate on the development of wireless Location Precise applications with a particular emphasis on rich media user interfaces and mobile-to-mobile gaming applications for the wireless Internet based on Gravitate’s Location Precise software platform.
Gravitate is a one-year-old company that offers enabling technologies and applications for Location Precise wireless Internet services. With applications supported by Gravitate’s Location Precise software platform, carriers and network operators can offer services to subscribers based on who and what is proximate to their mobile unit, providing far more relevant content than location-blind or location-aware techniques.
Under the terms of the agreement, Gravitate will grant Oven Digital a license of the Gravitate Platform for the purpose of developing mobile-to-mobile Location Precise applications. While the applications will be jointly developed and marketed by the two companies throughout the world, Gravitate and Oven will focus in particular on the Asian market due to the popularity of multi-user wireless Internet games. Oven Digital will be using the Gravitate platform to location-enable its first wireless mobile-to-mobile combat game and integrate a mobile-to-mobile chat capability to enrich the user experience.
In addition, Oven Digital will be a Gravitate-certified application development partner, the company’s premier provider of Location Precise wireless games and will develop specific mobile-to-mobile applications for its existing customer base who have already expressed interest in Location Precise services.
