Long before the iPhone took over the world, Nokia promised to combine the twoworlds of gaming and mobile phones with the N-Gage handset, a rather odd-shaped device released in 2003.

Having later relaunched it as a gaming platform, the Finnish company has now announced that it is set to shut it downin 2010. No new titles will be released, and once it’s closed, Nokia mobile users will only be able to download games from their Ovi Store.
