    Re: N GAGE any good?

    There are some good games available on MMC, with more in development... if
    you like mobile gaming, it's pretty good. Works pretty well as a standard
    Series60 Nokia device, too - all the stuff you'd find on a 3650, minus the
    camera.

    Sadly, you'll have to look like an idiot when people call you
    (www.sidetalkin.com)

    The choice is yours.

    You could just use a BT headset, but you still look a bit of a plank, or the
    HDD2 headset.

    I got mine for the FM radio and MP3 player/audio recorder (honest).

    > Anyone got one of these. Is it worth getting?

    It's an excellent idea, but there are too many design flaws to recommend it.

    Firstly, to change game cards, you have to switch off the machine, remove
    the back cover, remove the battery, remove the old game, put in the new
    game, put the battery back, put the back cover back on, turn the machine
    back on and wait patiently for it to load back up...

    Making a phone call on it is pretty awkward, and makes you look pretty odd,
    www.sidetalkin.com for examples.

    There is no maunal volume dial, so you have to have a game blast out music
    at you while you go though the menus to change the volume levels.

    The screen is portrait, not landscape like on Game Boy Advance, which is
    quite nice for vertical shooters, but pretty annoying in most other game
    genres. In Sonic N for example, you can't see where sonic's going at all,
    you can't see ahead much more than where sonic is standing due to the
    portrait display.

    Most crucially, the current selection of games is pretty uninspiring. It's
    mostly poorly done ports old PSone or Game Boy Advance games. There isn't
    much on the horizon that looks like it will rival the best the GBA has to
    offer either.

    All in all it's a nice idea, very poorly executed. I'd suggest buying a
    different phone and a Game Boy Advance SP, it's not as convenient, but far
    more functional. (The games are much better too, try Advance Wars, Golden
    Sun, Final Fantasy Tactics, Wario Ware, Inc. and Super Puzzle Fighter II
    Turbo)

    The PSP won't be out for a very long time. Live in the present, don't sit
    around waiting for the next big thing...
