Nokia seems to have decided to cut its losses with the much-maligned N-Gage portable game system/phone, and while we'll be seeing the N-Gage name around for future Nokia-branded gaming projects, the N-Gage hardware (both the original iteration and the QD redesign) are a thing of the past. It's probably for the best at this point. Few people bought into the N-Gage concept and even fewer people bought the N-Gage itself. There are just better portable gaming options out there, and combining a watered-down version of Tomb Raider with a cell phone just wasn't going to work against the like of Super Mario and Lumines. Spong has the story, and they cite a Nokia press release so I'm inclined to believe them.
Nokia had a rather large booth back at E3 this year to promote new N-Gage offerings. I walked by it a few times and each time I passed it there was nobody there playing a game or talking to the staff. E3 is packed full of people at all times. The convention hall is a sea of gamers and personal space is at a minimum. I could have gone to the N-Gage booth and done a series of backflips without colliding with a single person. That's just how empty the place was. So long, N-Gage hardware. You won't be missed, but you will be remembered. Remembered as a joke, most likely, but history can be a harsh mistress.
Spong also goes on about a Nintendo DS redesign that features free VoIP access, but I'll believe that when I see it.
