Nyt sitten Nokia myönsi vihdoin sen, mistä alalla on juoruttu: N-Gage ei ole myynyt haluttua tahtia kuluttajille asti. Taisi mennä Suomen historian suurin kansainvälinen tuotelanseeraus (rahalla mitattuna) päin honkia, kun N-gage ei ihan vastannut odotuksia ja kalliskin on. http://news.ft.com/servlet/ContentS...StoryFT/FullStory&c=StoryFT&cid=1075982723885 Game sector tough play for Nokia By Christopher Brown-Humes in Stockholm Published: February 22 2004 19:11 | Last Updated: February 22 2004 19:11 Nokia, the world's leading maker of mobile phones, has admitted for the first time that sales of its N-Gagegaming device are running below its own expectations. "The sales are in the lower quartile of the bracket we had as our goal," Jorma Ollila, the Finnish group's chairman and chief executive told the FT. N-Gage was launched last October as a key plank in Nokia's strategy to broaden its business beyond cellphones and bring mobility to gaming. Nokia has set a target of selling 9m of the devices in the first two years, but the company has now corroborated early evidence from game stores that sales have been sluggish. Mr Ollila said that the N-Gage had to be given until November 2005 before it could be judged a success or failure. A common complaint is that the N-Gage, with an unsubsidised price of about €300 ($380), is too expensive, particularly when compared with rival offerings such as Nintendo's GameBoy.
