Excerpt: Nokia järjesti elokuun keskivaiheilla N-Gage-häppeninkiä Helsingissä. Ensin olivat vuorossa Assemblyt ja yksi N-Gage-rekka, sen jälkeen maanantaina pelintekijöille suunnattu vapaamuotoinen tapahtuma ja tiistaiksi oli varattu aikaa lehdistölle. Markkinointijysäys on alkanut. Pelipakettiin on tulossa isompi juttu N-Gagesta hieman laitteen julkaisun jälkeen, joten tässä jutussa käydään kerromme ensikosketuksesta laitteeseen.
Excerpt: Nokia on päättänyt tulla mukaan kasvavaan pelibisnekseen luomalla laitteen, joka yhdistää pelikoneen, MP3-soittimen ja kännykän yksiin kuoriin. Nokia uskoo pelien ja viihteen olevan tärkeitä tulevaisuudessa. Mobiilipelaamisen uskotaan olevan seuraava suuri juttu pelialalla.
Excerpt: Any colour you like, as long as it's white. That's what Henry Ford would say about the N-Gage's in the UK, because every place seems to have stocks of the white N-Gage, but nothing else. Even a cursory look at the device shows that the front cover clicks off almost as easy as the back cover. Could this mean the craze for customised covers of colour, artwork, and A.A. Milne's Tigger will soon be appearing on a games machine near you?
Conclusion: The N-Gage is one of Nokia's better devices. It's graphically the best mobile game deck on the market, but the inability to quickly switch between games will limit its real competition with GameBoy. It's a good media player, but should support more audio formats. As a phone, however, a little more innovation is needed. If you're going to use the N-Gage primarily as a game deck or media player, then this is the phone for you.
Excerpt: Possibly the most hyped handset of the year, the Nokia N-Gage is finally here. Sean drives Nokia's first gaming specific handset around the block a few times and tells us what's up in his hands-on review.
Excerpt: Nokia is always looking for new markets and offers new variants of already known devices. Accessories, multimedia devices and game consoles (starting from this year) fall under comprehension diversification. The company has seen big potential in the youth audience. The majority of products are headed exactly to it. As against aged people young people buy phones actively, often change them and look for custom model.
