Zeemote Collaborates With Nokia Over Gaming Remote

Zeemote has announced its collaboration with Nokia in Germany in a move that is widely expected to give a flip to the mobile gaming market.

With this deal, hand held gaming controllers from Zeemote will be available with select Nokia models with indications of a tie in with the N-Gage platform.

Nokia is also expected to advertise Zeemote JS1 controllers in German media; the JS1 is compact wireless handheld device which aims to give a near console playing experience and provides true analog control

The announcement was in part of news events planned by the company towards the upcoming Gaming Convention in Leipzig.

Those who visit Leipzig can look forward to trying out these controllers first hand by checking out any of the mobile N-Gage gaming lounges.

Incidentally Zeemote had recently made a deal with Sony Ericsson in Netherlands and the company expects its tie-up with Nokia will increase the potential of game and application development.
