  • The N-Gage is a smartphone and handheld game system from Nokia, announced on 4 November 2002 and released on 7 October 2003. It runs on the original Series 60 on Symbian OS v6.1. The N-Gage QD was the re-designed successor to the original N-Gage, released in 2004. N-Gage attempted to lure gamers away from the Game Boy Advance by including mobile phone functionality. This was unsuccessful, partly because the buttons, designed for a phone, were not well-suited for gaming and when used as a phone the original N-Gage was described as resembling a "taco". In 2005, Nokia announced that it would move its N-Gage games capabilities onto a series of smartphones. This was announced as the N-Gage platform in 2007 and was released in beta form in February 2008. On 30 October 2009, Nokia pronounced the end of the N-Gage service.
