AT&T, which is heavily investing into Google’s Android based phones is coming up with a new social gaming platform for these phones. This move happens to come as AT&T has lost its monolpoly over the Apple iPhone. OpenFeint video game network, which develops social games that help users on different platforms play against each other and chat at the same time is partnering with AT&T for building the gaming platform for Android phones. Along with playing and chatting, the social gaming platform would also allow interested users to create content.
Apparently, OpenFeint is Apple’s competitor on the social gaming platform. Apple has its own gaming platform called the Game Center which was last by Apple in September 2010 for the iPod Touch and iPhone. With AT&T losing its grip on Apple and the increasing popularity of mobile gaming, Android phones gain.
