New N-Gage launch pushed back until December

Nokia needs more time for software testing

Nokia has announced that its relaunch of the N-Gage platform will be delayed until December, as it continues to finalise software for the online-enabled service.

Nokia's new Ovi brand incorporates music, gaming, GPS, photography and other online-enabled features, with the N-Gage functions due to go live this month.

"N-gage is coming in December. Software testing is taking a bit more time than what we had expected," said Kari Tuutti, spokesperson for Nokia, reports Reuters.

Electronic Arts and Gameloft will be offering games for the new N-Gage service, which allows players to download demos, read reviews, connect to other players and access other gaming features.
