In a no-surprise move Nokia will slowly phase out their N-Gage (aka The Taco) Game Phone. Why this didn’t happen sooner, who knows? Nokia probably didn’t want to admit defeat 2 years ago, so they continued to release newer versions of the device, hoping and praying that lack luster sales was due to user interface quirks found in its original version – guess not Nokia.
Nokia has sold 2 million N-Gages since its release – they had hoped for 6 million. Nokia will continue to provide a ‘gaming experience’ but plans to focus on music centric phones and will incorporates games into other phones as an additional feature.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
