R.I.P. N-Gage

In an extremely shocking announcement, Nokia said it will no longer put development time into the N-Gage, meaning no more new versions or updates. This comes as an enormous surprise after the N-Gage was so popular and awesome! Nokia also said it's not done in the mobile gaming market yet. The company plans to crawl back into the mobile gaming market in 2007—reason: who knows? See you later, N-Gage. Out of all of the taco-ear phones, you were my favorite.
