Nokia Plans N-Gage Revision
What does the Finnish company have up its sleeve this time?
A report MSNBC indicates that mobile phone company Nokia is underway developing new designs and models for their current cell phone/portable gaming machine N-Gage. No specific details were given as to when this new model would be revealed to the public, but it is likely to fix current issues that has confronted the console since its launch.
Gerard Wiener, director and general manager of the games business program at Nokia did not get into specifics, but did mention that the company is approaching the N-Gage redesign from several angles. "We're looking at new colors, a new look and feel for the QD in the next few months." It is expected that new wireless technology will be implemented into the redesign.
This would be Nokia's second redesign of N-Gage. Following the handheld's 2003 release, Nokia released the much smaller, non-sidetalkin' N-Gage QD in 2004. Modojo will have more on the next N-Gage model in the coming months.
