I agree with your e-mail it is toot early to see if N-Gage is success
or a flop.
One more doubt is if the N-Gage really goes after the operators
1 - Games distribution is mainly physical and not OTA
2 - Operator phone customisation is limited
3 - Multiplayer gaming is mainly bluetooth based OTA is marginal
4 - No camera is included so traffic generation will be probably limited
5 - DRM OTA content download is not supported
Under this point of view the 3650 or the 3660 are much more in line
with what the operators want.
So this is a clear move to go after the users not the operators and also
is going to limit the joined marketing efforts similar to those we can
with the 3650 (Tim-Nokia, Wind-Nokia).
Between N-gage and 3650 the hardware differences are also minimal
regarding mainly the possibility (N-Gage) of using more
than one button at the same time for game playing and an
optimised bluetooth for multiplayers.
Not including hardware graphic acceleration has been a strange choice
leaving this possibility to the competitors.
