At the E3 gaming megashow, Nokia announced plans to bring N-Gage games to the next generation of Nokia smartphones. Currently the games only play on N-Gage handsets which have seen less than stellar sales. The new phones should begin shipping in the first half of 2006. More information (such as titles) will be announced later this year. Nokia expects to sell over 25 million smartphones during 2005. bq. The aim of this next generation of mobile gaming is to expand the N-Gage platform's rich connected multiplayer experience across a wide range of Nokia's multimedia devices.
