Are you ready to N-Gage?
Nokia showcased its new mobile games, the Nokia N-Gage™ game deck, at "Get Ready to N-Gage" events in London, UK and Sydney, Australia. The Nokia N-Gage™ mobile game deck offers a new gameplay experience, bringing top titles from the biggest names in the games industry into the palm of your hand and out onto the mobile network. With its multi-player action via Bluetooth and WAP over GPRS, the game deck opens up new possibilities for both local and remote multiplayer gaming.

The high performance games for Nokia N-Gage game deck are sold separately on game cards (using the MultiMediaCard standard).
