Nokia has itself in some hot water after fans of the N-Gage devices from Nokia have found that the games they have bought can’t be sent to a new handset if they upgrade. That means that anyone looking to upgrade devices simply has to purchase all the games over again.

I can understand game developers wanting to protect their work from piracy, and somewhere somehow Nokia is likely using piracy as a shield to take advantage of N-Gage customers. Gamers are one of the categories of electronics users that upgrade their devices often and not being able to move your games makes upgrading very unattractive.
The really bad part is that mobile phones tend to get damaged easily if they are dropped or become inoperable. This would mean a defective handset would also render all the games purchased useless. To rub salt in the wound Nokia allows music purchased through its music service to be sent to a new device after an upgrade, but not games. Shame on you Nokia.
