Thanks to Costik.com for its in-depth discussion of the Nokia N-Gage's advantages and disadvantages
, a post sparked by Scott Miller's weblog post on the same subject
, in which the 3D Realms founder argues "Nokia means cell phones to consumers. So, when Nokia jumps into the games market, it doesn't make sense to people"
, and concludes: "Nokia needs to create a separate company to handle the N-Gage. The 'Nokia' name should never be associated with this device, much like the Toyota name is not associated with Lexus."
Greg Costikyan's reply counters: "Launching N-Gage as a Nokia device wasn't a bad idea; the flaws of the device were, however"
, and ends: "I personally would not be surprised if, two or three years from now, Nokia decides to give it another go, with a new device."
