Hello all,

 

As you know, I always hate being the one to announce bad news, and I hope you know we really wanted to get the support working for those devices, which is why they were left up as coming soon on the site for so long.

 

Anyway, let me put my PR friendly hat on for a moment to give you a brief explanation:

 

Although the N73, N93 and N93i were initially planned as N-Gage compatible devices, we have reluctantly come to the conclusion that we won't be able support these devices going forward. There are several reasons for this, but the decisive factor was that we were not satisfied with the N-Gage experience and N-Gage gaming on these devices. We totally understand that this is a huge disappointment for some of you, particularly those of you who have been waiting a looooong time for this support, and for this we sincerely apologize.
 
I know most of you have been expecting this announcement for quite a while and hopefully you can forgive us for not come to this decision sooner, but as I said we really wanted to bring these devices to N-Gage so we kept the work going on them as long as we could, but in the end the quality and stability of the experience wasn't there on these devices.
 
Anyway, any additional questions or if you feel like just venting your frustrations at someone, feel free to hit me with a PM and I'll be glad to respond.
 
Your friend and fellow N-Gager,
 
 ~ RR
 
P.S. - good catch on the China location page thanks guys.

Sadly I own an N73 AND an N93i.  I got doubly hit for being an early adopter.  Watching ebay for a cheap N81.  May get lucky, who knows.

You know people from eBay actually post pictures of an N81 (or any other phone) that looks like an original N81 (you know, S60 interface, etc.) and even claiming it an N81 but then when you buy it... well... fake china phone.

I don't know about you guys but I would pretty much prefer to check out the unstable, sluggish version rather than not having any version at all. I know that Nokia is probably thinking that if they release the unstable version the people who buy the games will get a bad experience and not be satisfied paying for this but I believe that by now mainly the N73/N93/N93i owners who are acquainted with the situations are left and they might prefer to at least try the demos and see for themselves. Nokia can put a warning sign that the N-Gage app doesn't run good on these phones.The N93i comes with System Rush Demo which runs truly smooth on the phone so I think that there might some other games who won't run bad either. At the end of the day, having a disappointing version is less disappointing than not having any version at all. These are my thoughts, of course, if Nokia really have this version as the guy said but it's good, anyway, that someone came out and admitted what was going on with the support. I guess that the owners of these phones might want to share their opinion about my suggestion whether they would like this sluggish version better than not having any at all or not.

Game_hunter dont buy an used phone from Ebay... Like Jpower said you might get tricked...

 Maybe you should consider buying a new edition of the phones OR if the price is a problem buy 5320 XM..

 

5320 XM is cheap, It is close to n73 and you get quality for your money...

If your going to get n81 from ebay then look for a good reasonable priced one and contact the seller and tell him to show you images of the phone with his ebay username on a paper next to the phone. then you know if it 100% legit.
