Nokia Dominates Djuzz Downloads

Global mobile media firm BuzzCity has releases its latest monthly Djuzz Mobile Gaming Metrics report, based on December 2010 data, which analyses the traffic and usage of its mobile gaming portal Djuzz. The report also highlights trends in mobile gaming over the past 11 months since Djuzz launched. In less than one year of operations, Djuzz has delivered almost 50m games.

In December, Djuzz delivered more than 9m games. There were 120,000 unique daily visitors, a 9 per cent increase over November. Each one generates at least four downloads. 15 of the top 20 devices in 2010 were Nokia, and 49 per cent of all downloads used Nokia devices.

Blackberry took 0.5 per cent of overall downloads and continues to grow, gaining a strong foothold in several key mobile markets, including the UK, US and Indonesia. Downloads via BlackBerry increased three-fold during the second half of the year, which BuzzCity says can be attributed to increased distribution via the Djuzz Catalogue (launched in mid-May) and the increase in BlackBerry games made available during the third quarter.

“Mobile gaming is going from strength to strength,” says BuzzCity CEO, BuzzCity. “We expect 2011 to be an exciting time for the mobile gaming community – from developers through to brands who use games to reach their audiences.”

The top five most active countries were India, Indonesia, the US, Nigeria and S. Africa. The top categories were Action & Adventure (24 per cent); Racing (13 per cent); Sports (10 per cent); 3D Games (10 per cent); and Arcade (9 per cent).
