Digital Chocolate and EA win at ME Awards

Trip Hawkins’ portable games studio Digital Chocolate and EA Mobile were the big games-related winners at last night’s ME Awards, hosted by MCV’s sister magazine Mobile Entertainment.

The ceremony, hosted by Mobile Entertainment magazine, rewards innovation and creativity in the mobile content sector and took place earlier tonight at the Royal Garden Hotel in London.

It attracted guests from over 120 companies in media, technology and entertainment from around the world.

The awards recognised achievement in the following categories: development and publishing; services; handsets and operators. The winners were decided by a judging panel drawn from the ME contacts book and consisting of around 400 execs from all sectors of the business.

Tim Green, executive editor of Mobile Entertainment magazine, said: The ME Awards event is a chance for the mobile content business to celebrate its amazing progress into the mainstream. And with the whole world obsessed with apps and widgets, it really feels like the industry is at the centre of things. Congratulations to all the winners.”
