Mobile VAS company Comviva has launched online gaming solutions (OGS) on the opening day of the Mobile World Congress 2010 in Barcelona. After downloading the server driven OGS client users can access various games without having to individually download any game on their mobile phones. According to the company, the OGS will allow operators to try out different pricing models besides the traditional pay per download structure, including try-and-buy.
