This is the Nokia Ngage, I dont think it has been official announced yet.. But does anyone has any info on it? I havent been able to dig up anything..
It should be a 'gameboy'wannaB/cellular phone...

Is that a GSM? 900 / 1800 or 1900 or trial?

How can Nokia even try to make that a phone? Where are the earpiece and mic? How odd.
Anyway, since it is a phone-like device, this belongs in Digital Hub. Moving now.

Nokia is trying to compete with Nintendo in the handheld gaming market with this device. Sega has already announced a few different games for the system including a Super Monkey Ball title and a 'new' Sonic game.
Of course the GBA already has these games and the system is much cheaper- $60 now and no doubt cheaper when the GBA SP hits shelves in a few months.
I don't think that Nokia can overtake Nintendo in this market. After all, no one has so far and many have tried.
I'll have to see more to make a final judgement on it though.

Why does it seem like a design/ergonomic nightmare? I can't imagine anyone wanthing that thing.

I got to see some games run on it. They looked good but that's all I can say about it. I can't see it rocking Nintendo's GBA boat. I look for this thing to cost twice as much as a GBA. Maybe even 3 times as much.
