Oh yeah, the video game playing taco phone is back, kind of. It is "highly likely" that the N-Gage software platform will be announced at the Game Developer's Conference. It saddens me to say that the taco phone will not be relaunched, rather Nokia will be releasing the N-Gage software platform to likely work with their N-series phones. Good luck with that, Nokia. Nice to see you haven't given up.

Sweet. I loved my N-Gage. Besides it's large size, it was an amazing phone, and cheap to boot. $200 unsubsidized. As lame as it was, I loved walking down the street and having people stare at me while i talk into a taco on the side of my head. I always got the most puzzling looks.
