A Game Player That Happens to Be a Phone

A Game Player That Happens to Be a Phone "The world is awash in cellphones that deliver only black-and-white video games that are as archaic looking as Pong.
Nokia is hoping to change that landscape with N-Gage, its new mobile phone that offers graphically rich, three-dimensional, full-color video games stored on cards. The handset, with its built-in wireless technology, allows two players to compete in the same room, while software built into each game allows players across the world from each other to compete by way of a special Web site. The unit is also an MP3 player, capable of storing songs downloaded from a PC onto a memory card, and an FM radio. Oh, and by the way, it can make phone calls."
