THQ Wireless Almost Finnish?

THQ Wireless (a division of struggling THQ) is going to focus exclusively on games for smartphone platforms and will move all its production to its Universomo studio in Finland according to IGN. The move will result in 100 layoffs in the US, UK and Germany. Currently the division generates about $20mil in revenue and is not profitable. The frenzy to jump on the smartphone bandwagon is becoming worrisome...and it makes one wonder how many games publishers those platforms can sustain and whether some companies stand to benefit by continuing to support Java & BREW platforms.
