New Nokia N-Gage delay

Nokia has announced yet another delay for its N-Gage online service. N-Gage was originally slated to launch in November, in part to support its N81 gaming phone; the date was then moved to this week, but the company now says that N-Gage is still in no shape for a debut. The network's 1,000 testers are said to have encountered "unexpected difficulties," meaning that the early-adopter First Access program will not begin until after the holidays.

When it does launch, N-Gage should Nokia owners to buy, download and play a variety of cellphone games, including ones with 3D graphics. This may initially limit the network to people with the N81, but Nokia hopes to expand support to include earlier phones such as the N73, N93 and N95, and it will likely design future high-end phones with gaming in mind.
