Apple’s IPhone Dominates Mobilephone Gaming Downloads

The iPhone is, by far, the most popular mobile-phone gaming platform in the U.S. Out of the top 10 models of phones used for downloading games, four are iPhones, which hold the top three spots as well, according to market research company comScore.

The 8GB, 3G version of the iPhone tops the list. It is followed by the original 8GB version and the 16GB, 3G version. The old 16GB iPhone trails the others, but it is still number seven on the list.

A total of about 1.1 million U.S. owners of the four iPhone models have used the device for downloading games, according to comScore.

There are a number of explanations for Apple's dominance, according to Alistair Hill, analyst at comScore.

"The App Store is incredibly easy to use. It's marketed very well, so everybody knows about it, and also it allows game developers to develop for it in a very easy and transparent way," said Hill.
