More and more people are buying smart phones and tablets these days. The statistics are showing that the number of smart phone and tablets users is growing by hundreds of millions every year, worldwide. Under these circumstances it makes perfect sense for the online poker rooms to start launching mobile version of their poker clients, so that players can enjoy playing poker from virtually anywhere.
Right now one of the main problems that the mobile poker industry is facing is the fact that there is no dominant operating system and making a version for each and every type of phone can become a very expensive task. This is the reason why the vast majority of online poker rooms have only launched versions for two of the most popular mobile phone operating systems: iOS and Android.
The Android is a mobile phone and tablet operating system that was launched by Google at the end of the year 2008. Thanks to the fact that this OS is open source there are a wide range of both phones and tablets that are using it. Straight from the start there was a rise in popularity of the Android powered mobile devices and the apps that are currently available for the Android phones are more than 600K. Right now there are hundreds of millions of android users and under these circumstances it starts to make sense financially for an online poker room to invest in developing compatible mobile poker software.
Android Poker Rooms
There are a good number of poker rooms out there that offer you the possibility to play real money poker against other players with the help of your Android smartphone or tablet. Here is the list with the most important Android poker rooms: Unibet Poker and Party Poker.
The iOS is the operating system which powers the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. There are currently hundreds of millions of iOS users all over the world. Since this mobile operating system is also very popular just like the Android the online poker sites are also offering versions of their poker software which are compatible with these mobile devices.
