New N-Gage launch gets delayed Nokia has announced that their relaunch of the failed N-Gage platform will be delayed until at least December as the company works on finalizing the software for the online-enabled service.
Nokia's new OVI brand will incorporate music, gaming, GPS, photography and other online-enabled features including N-Gage functions.

"N-gage is coming in December. Software testing is taking a bit more time than what we had expected,"
said Kari Tuutti, spokesperson for Nokia.

The N-Gage service, which allows players to download demos, connect to other players, as well access other gaming features and read reviews will have games created by Gameloft and Electronic Arts when it goes live.

guess Nokia is banking on the notion "Third times a charm". the original N-Gage was a poor game device, and a terrible phone. The QD addressed some of the short-comings of the orignal, but was still a piece of crap (as phone and game device).
