In the last couple of days numerous stories apear on major news outlets about the disaster Nokia is heading into.
Are they right ? There is a poll attached to this story. What do you think ? Will N-Gage be a hit or the biggest failure of Nokia ?

Snippet from a CNN Money Story: "I've had a pair of N-gages in hand for over a month now, testing several games and other features. The experience has been akin to watching a promising child waste his or her potential -- and then ask for an enormous boost in their allowance. " In the CNN story is also a funny photo of the reporter using the N-Gage as a Phone.

The Mercury News writes: "Dis-N-Gage. At the risk of being excessively cruel, that's my one-word reaction to the new Nokia N-Gage hybrid portable video game player/mobile phone/MP3 player/FM radio."

More neutral report on BBC: "On the eve of the N-Gage going on sale, Nokia was upbeat about future sales. "We are targeting selling several million N-Gage units in 2004," Nokia spokesman Kari Tuutti told the Reuters news agency.
