"The N-Gage is a mobile telephone and handheld game system by Nokia, released in October 2003.
N-Gage attempted to lure gamers away from the Game Boy Advance by including cellphone functionality. This was unsuccessful, partly because the buttons, designed for a phone, were not well-suited for gaming and when used as a phone the original N-Gage was described as resembling a "taco".
In 2005, Nokia announced that it would move its N-Gage games capabilities onto a series of smartphones, and N-Gage became a service rather than a dedicated hardware platform. On October 30, 2009, Nokia announced that no new N-Gage games will be produced, and the N-Gage service will cease at the end of 2010.
