    Take a look at what Nokia is doing with the N-Gage gaming platform. It is pretty darn brilliant if you ask me. They are basically turning their handsets into little GameGear's and launching their mobile gaming version of iTunes complete with social networking and other very Web2.0 new age inclusions.

    I hope folks that are developing games for Android... and the Android team themselves... are taking a close look at what Nokia has done here because I think they are setting the bar at a high level as far as "how to do" mobile gaming.

    Any Nokia owners out there want to comment on their experience with N-Gage. Of course if you don't have a Nokia you're allowed to comment, too... hehe

    Take a look at Nokia's SNAP Mobile division too. I saw some multiplayer mobile games from SNAP at a demo in 2006.

    The original N-Gage (as a device) flopped due to some really bad hardware/engineering decisions and it never really recovered. But it was a good idea and the N-Gage platform lives on (sorta).

    Never had any experience with the N-Gage, but i currently have an N80 and its just an awesome phone, I've owned multiple different Nokias but this was my first N-Series. Nokia = #1. Android needs to look out for when Nokia makes their Symbian OS open source too.
