Nokia N-gage delayed for a third time Nokia has once again delayed the launch of its mobile gaming service N-Gage due to delays in software testing.
The latest delay puts a damper on the progress Nokia had been making in its Internet services ambitions. The mobile phone company had hoped to join the gaming service with a music shop and a mapping service and release it under its new "Ovi" brand.

Nokia unveiled the service in August with plans for it to be available globally in November. In Novemebr it was delayed into December and recently it was delayed into January. Nokia spokesman Kari Tuutti has now said the service would be opened "in early 2008."

"We found one more issue which had to be solved before we could open the service,"
Tuutti said.

Seriously, does anyone actually care about the N-Gage? I had one ages ago, it was absolutely shit and a failure. Nokia have got way too much money.

At least they are testing their product before releasing it with bugs and problems i would say it would be better to wait than anything else.
