EA Mobile will release Android games... but not yet

The publisher is waiting till it can charge for them

Since Google unveiled the first Android handset earlier this week, both Glu Mobile and Namco Networks have announced their first Android games.

However, due to the fact that the Android Market will only allow free apps initially, Bonsai Blast and Pac-Man will be given away.

So what about EA Mobile? A spokesperson has confirmed to Pocket Gamer that the publisher will support Android, but not yet.

"EA will support the Android platform, as any platform that can deliver a robust game experience is good for introducing new consumers to mobile games," they say.

"EA Mobile has elected to wait for the launch of a content billing solution to bring their premier IP to market."

Essentially, that means no The Sims, FIFA or Spore Origins until EA can charge for them.

However, that phrase 'premier IP' could be telling - perhaps the publisher will release some other games as freebies while waiting for Google to allow paid app downloads.
