Smartmobs:N-gage handheld gaming splashes the market
Nokia's long anticipated N-Gage handheld device has hit the market and made a splash. The company claims selling perhaps half a million units so far, while others see smaller gains.
N-gage ambitiously combines cell phone and handheld, networked gaming, and MP3 player, with radio thrown in to boot. The strategy, energetically marketed, is based partly on yoking together two powerful social technologies, mobile phones and networked gaming.
