EA Readying 'Popular and Fun' Kindle Games, Reportedly Working on New Apple Tablet

As rumors of Apple unveiling a new tablet device next week continue to swirl, The Wall Street Journal reports that video game colossus Electronic Arts is working with Apple "to show off the tablet's game capabilities."

Electronic Arts has already brought many major franchises to Apple's iPhone and iPod touch devices, including Tetris, Command & Conquer, Need for Speed, NBA Live, Madden NFL, Littlest Pet Shop, Charm Girls Club, FIFA, The Sims, Mass Effect, SimCity, Spore, Rock Band, Battleship, Connect 4, Monopoly and Tiger Woods PGA Tour.

Rumors suggest Apple's new device will serve as an e-book, newspaper and magazine reader in addition to the expected multimedia and gaming functionality.

Electronic Arts is also among those working with Amazon.com, the two announced today, as the online retailer seeks to expand its monochrome e-book reader Kindle with "active content" later this year. "We look forward to bringing some of the world's most popular and fun games to Kindle and their users," noted EA Mobile's Adam Sussman.
