"The studio will develop games for cell phones and portables such as DS and PSP. Currently in the pipeline at id Mobile is a mobile version of Wolfenstein as well as a follow-up to the successful Doom RPG."

maybe its just me but wolfenstein and doom have been widely available for mobile smartphones (ppc, symbian, uiq) for years now. i dont have much doubt that their've been homebrewd for the ds and psp also. i cant see the big difference, other then maybe having to pay for obsolete portable games, will they make it java based or somthing?
if id can release quake 4 or doom 3 on psp and ds with flawless framerates without reducing graphical quality, only then IMO is a mobile division going to benefit mobile gamers.
