  • Summary: Put a loud speaker on the QD. Simple enough brief, but a lack of focus means many details are lost. Ewan has a look at the gaming peripheral.

Nokia N-Gage QD

PC Magazine
9 June 2006
  • Conclusion: A smaller and easier version, with a better design than last year's N-Gage model, the QD is a decent relaunch. But the arrival of the Tapwave Zodiac and the prospect of new Nintendo and Sony handheld systems on the horizon might just signal the end for N-Gage—unless a lot of people want a phone/game console combo.
  • Pros: Easy access to hot-swap games (unlike first-generation model). Smaller size and better controls than its predecessor.
  • Cons: Limited audio options (including no radio and no MP3 playback). Limited game library. No longer a tri-band phone.

Nokia N-Gage QD

Mobile Review
2 August 2004
  • Excerpt: The first Nokia attempt to produce a multi-purpose device encompassing the portable gaming-console and the phone’s function has failed. Nokia N-gage was already heard of at the end of the year 2002 although it entered the marked only in the fall 2003. Time of the release was truly beneficial-right before the heated Christmas sales. Nokia had spent tremendous amounts of money advertising Nokia N-gage project.

  • Summary: It looks the part, it acts the part, and is a huge improvement over the Mark 1 device. It's not perfect, but then, what device is nowadays?
