The N-Gage European Tour

Written by Lasse Penttinen @ 12 Aug 2003 13:27 User comments (5)

The N-Gage European Tour Nokia has started the N-Gage promotional tour today. The first event took place in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. On the tour the N-Gage is demonstrated in action to the media and consumers. Also taking place is a Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4 contest, with a chance to win a trip to the grand final taking place in Paris.
The N-Gage is the first next generation hand held console. In addition to offering a high quality gaming experience, the N-Gage has a fully featured GSM cell phone built-in, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, audio player features, email protocol support for mobile communications and more.

The N-Gage is entering the market with no competition, as its features go far beyond the Nintendo’s GBA. Nokia has approximately a year to freely increase its market share, until the Sony Playstation Portable is released -- by the end of 2004. Sony has a whole lot of work to do before the product launch, as the PSP is currently in the planning stage.

As the retail release date is getting close, the N-Gage.com is now accepting pre-orders.

N-Gage will never make it if these promises of the PSP are true.

The N-Gage is ready, while the PSP is only talk and written words. Sony will have a hard time getting the PSP out to the market within the promised time table (before the end of 2004)


The old school is back. All hail the new http://BitBurners.com !

N-Gage appears to me to be something between a portable gaming machine and a light PDA. What about pricing? How much can we expect to pay for this thing?

i like the look and feel of the n-gage, and the features are worth the price. there's going to be some really nice stuff for the online gameplay as well, according to this article from last week or so: http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/030820/205282_1.html i've got one on preorder and couldn't be more excited to check it out!
