Espoo, Finland, October 6, 2005 - Nokia has launched an on-line campaign, N-Gage Academy, to teach mobile phone users how to download and share games.

Wiener continued, "Gamers can also send the mini-game to their friends by Bluetooth. The N-Gage Academy campaign shows everyone that mobile gaming is fun and that everyone can play. This is also something we want to do with our next generation of mobile gaming on Nokia smartphones - with fantastic gaming quality!"
