SudokuIn a recent announcement, AOL noted that Sudoku (the Japanese, number placing puzzle) is a term that has quickly risen to the ranks of their leading search terms... the term has made the list of Top 25 AOL search terms for 2005. This addictive game is available from numerous publishers and typically ranges in price from $3 - $9, although free versions can be found if you look hard enough. UIQ, S60, S80, and Java flavors are available.

A quick look around SymbianOne using the term will also result in a few hits, many of them of interest to the symbian smartphone user.

About Sudoku
Sudoku has turned everyday puzzle players into Sudoku fanatics. There's no math involved. The grid has numbers, but nothing has to add up to anything else. You solve the puzzle with reasoning and logic. It's fun. It's challenging. It's addictive! (Source: Sudoku.com)

Solving time is typically from 10 to 30 minutes, depending on your skill and experience
