Next-Gen.Biz writes: "EA chief John Riccitiello is feeling a bit better about EA Mobile's performance these days.
"I'll admit that a year ago at this time, I was pretty nervous," said Riccitiello about the EA Mobile games division at the William Blair & Company's investor meeting Tuesday.
"Our mobile business had lost most of the management team that had created the business, and we were on a below-plan, consecutive month-in, month-out performance trend.
"It was not the prettiest thing I've seen."
EA's cellular handset business generated $148 million in revenues in fiscal 2008, up from $140 million in 2007 and a mere $19 million in 2006."
