The N-Gage devices and game cards will be sold at retailers including Best Buy, Circuit City, Electronics Boutique, GameStop, and Target.

    N-Gage combines a several entertainment features in addition to full GSM phone capabilities. The N-Gage has a backlit color screen and face buttons designed to make it easy to control games. One of its unique features is that it has Bluetooth wireless support to allow nearby N-Gage owners to play multiplayer games without using a fee-based cell phone network. The device also has built-in MP3 music playback and stereo FM radio.

    A number of game publishers previously pledged to release games for the N-Gage, most notably Activision, Eidos, Sega, THQ, and Taito. Few games have been specifically announced, but some will be at E3 this week. One newly announced N-Gage game that will take advantage of the device's wireless multiplayer capabilities will be THQ's Red Faction.

    Sounds interesting enough. It would be better if they added a camera to the deal and a way to browse the internet.. :P

    Question Online Games

    Since the games will be played on a Feature-packed Cell phone (-or vica-versa) will Online Multiplay gaming be explored??

    Might have to subscribe to a 'Live!' style server ??
