TechCrunch reports that GameStop seems set to provide a bring-your-own-phone cellular service through its US outlets; a website devoted to the service went live laste last week but was rapidly pulled. A virtual carrier service would give the retail chain a slice of the growing mobile gaming pie, in addition to its recently launched Steam wallet service on the digital distribution front. Both initiatives seem sensible as GameStop posted a pretty dire first quarter.
