Nokia N-Gage Next Week

Nokia will launch its N-Gage gaming service for its newer phones in an early form next week, according to an update from the Finnish company's team. Originally announced with the N81 phone, the service lets users download and play games directly from supporting handhelds with the 3D graphics and content often found impossible through ordinary phone games. The debut is a pre-release version that will include both a test version of the store and will include at least one full N-Gage game, Nokia says.

The service currently needs either the stock N81 with a microSD card or its N81 8GB variant; the original announcement also notes that earlier phones will support N-Gage in the future, including the well-known N95 as well as the N73 and N93. Nokia has not yet said when it plans to complete both the store and the complete initial lineup but will be using feedback from the community to speed up the release. The test version is expected by Tuesday.
