Getty Images subsidiary iStockphoto has selected Amuse Entertainment Group BV to take its stock photography images into the mobile sector. During the pilot phase of the project, which will be launched in the UK, mobile users will be able to download wallpapers from a selection of 5,000 images from iStockphoto's library. Subscribers of 3, Orange, O2, T-Mobile, Virgin Mobile and Vodafone can download these wallpapers. "People want their gadgets to feel uniquely theirs, including their mobile phones," said Garth Johnson, VP of business development at Calgary-based iStockphoto. The project will roll out in April and will be expanded to Canada and the United States based on the success of the pilot.
