Nokia announced it will quit the mobile gaming market for a couple of years and says it won't built new versions of the N-Gage gaming phone.
The first N-Gage phone was launched in 2003 but the company says the sales were rather disappointing. At least until 2007 mobile gaming won't be one of Nokia's focus points.
"We learnt that people want to play games on all devices. As such we are integrating the gaming software into Series 60 phones."More info over here. Nokia had expected to sell at least six million N-Gage game phones but it has only sold two million units in three years time.
Vasara explained that screen sizes and quality will be much more conducive to mobile gaming systems by 2007.
