REDWOOD CITY, CA– October 23, 2008 - Coinciding with the North American release of the T-Mobile G1 mobile phone, HUDSON SOFT is launching three free games–“Charlene’s Beachside Blackjack”,“Charlene’s Beachside Klondike” and“Charlene’s Beachside Reversi”– today. The T-Mobile G1 is the first mobile phone to use the open standard mobile device platform, Android, which was developed by the Open Handset Alliance.

The games will be distributed on Android Market, which launches simultaneously with the T-Mobile G1. Android Market is the distribution gateway to download applications and content for Android-powered mobile phones.

Harnessing the T-Mobile G1’s capabilities, these three innovative games use the touch screen and trackball for intuitive controls.

Charlene’s Beachside Series is a brand-new casual game series tailored for an international audience using the new mobile device platform. The series is set in the“Hartman Resort”, an exclusive, luxury casino on the Caribbean. You play casual games opposite the beautiful dealer Charlene. Thought she has a reputation as a fearsome opponent, she will smile gracefully when the player wins.
