The analytical engine would eat the taco for breakfast.

I never heard of either of them, but nothing could be more useless than the n-gage....

Giggle... Babbage Patch Kids.

Ahem. Charles Babbage was a genius IMO. I can't say the same for the N-Gage's designer, however.

Babbage was a genius! They even named a video game store after him! The Analytical Engine was so revolutionary, even if it was mostly just a concept! GO BABBAGE!

Might as well use this for something. N-GAGE CHAT ITT!

Seriously, just how bad this this thing? If I were to get one, I'd use it just for gaming, obviously. No need for the phone service haha. The games are dirt cheap nowadays, and since there is only about 54 released games for the system, it's an easy pick up of a full collection.

Anybody know of any bright spots for this thing? It can't be all bad, mostly because all I hear bad about it is the damn things shape (that and dis-assembling it to put in a new game, but that was fixed in the QD).

No emulators or anything like that either, but apparently if you have a Nokia phone you can get one idk :\

Now that the zombie has risen from its grave, i'd just like to say the N-Gage is cool. If nothing else, for "Pathway to Glory". Its one of the best strategy games of all time, on ANY system. Seriously, its worth the price of an N-Gage just for this game.
