    This is about the fourth time now, I think. They must have paid a pretty penny for the N-Gage name.

    no no no...all they'll is rehash what are essentially PSone games onto a crappier device. which is essentially what the PSP did. except the PSP has PS2 games. they have to realise that the games market here won't be hardcore gamers, nor will they be casual gamers. they will be "i'm so casual at gaming i play snake while on the loo" gamers. looking at another failure here i think.

    That made me lol!

    But it is also probably pretty accurate. Phone games need to be simple, play for 5 mins while you're waiting for a friend games. That's my opinion anyway.

    I installed it yesterday, and cannot for the life of me get it to use the correct access point. It keeps trying to use EasyWLAN (will NOT work without a Wi-Fi connection!!) or the one for MMS.

    It's a bloody nuisance, and not a good start to the release!



    Instead of using an image of that old outdated N-Gage "console", maybe you'd like to include a screenshot of the actual software. ;)

    There must be money in the N-Gage, otherwise they just wouldn't bother.

    This thing is like Nokia's "Zune"....have fun in a crowded market, that already has heard of the N-gage and knows it as a total failure. Other than those things Im sure it will do well ;)

    This would explain all the N-Gage - jackets that suddenly sprung up on people overnight.

    Of course, why have a phone and a digital camera and a handheld gaming device when you can have one that does all three.. awfully
