A new distribution partnership between Cyanogen and Playphone has been inked, placing the latter’s social game store on Cyanogen OS devices in select international markets. Playphone’s catalog of games, most of which are free-to-play titles, mirror what you would expect from Google’s Play Store. There are popular titles such as Cut the Rope 2 and Final Fantasy III as well as smaller ones like Acorn Buster. While the markets to see Playphone pre-installed on Cyanogen OS were not named, we expect emerging markets to be the target. Playphone has shifted its focus to emerging markets where mobile gaming may not be as popular.

There is not yet a specified date for when Cyanogen OS devices will ship with Playphone.

Hit the break for the full press release.

Over the next few months, Cyanogen should have a stronger force in penetrating emerging markets. The software developer has plans to hire talent for an office that would open this summer in either Bangalore or Dehli. The new office in India would be home to as many as fifty employees, all helping Cyanogen bring its software to the billions of people located in that part of the world.

Expect to see Cyanogen acquire startups, too, as a way to expand its portfolio.
