According to the statistics released by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China in December, 2009, China's total mobile phone users reached 750 million, and 3G users 15 million in 2009. Almost all of the mobile phone users can be considered as potential users of mobile games.

In the entire mobile game industry, mobile online game characterizes great potentials. By the end of 2008, China had boasted of 117 million mobile netizens, and this figure increased to 233 million at the end of 2009, a 60.8% share of all Internet users.

19.3% of mobile netizens, a total of about 45 million people, plays mobile online games. But the number was only 23 million in June, 2009, which saw an increase of 96% in only half a year. With the popularization of 3G mobile phones and the increasing network access rate, mobile online games will win more users.
