Nokia N-Gage QD review

N-Gage QDMatt Slagle, an AP technology writer, has written a review of the Nokia N-Gage QD. The original N-Gage was met with poor reviews thanks to a awkward design. Having a $299 pricetag didn't help. This time around some things have changed: no more side talking, hot-swappable MMC and a smaller design. But in the eyes of Mr. Slagle, not enough has changed: bq. The QD revision remains stuck between two disparate functions: talking and gaming. Like the original, I found the QD too big and uncomfortable to be a full-time phone yet too limited to compete with more robust, dedicated portable game systems. The price of the N-Gage QD is an attractive $99 (with service contract, $199 without). It's already available in Europe and Asia and should be shipping in the US by the end of July.
