I had the original N-Gage. It was my first smartphone. It had some stupid design decisions (difficult to remove/change the game cards, sidetalking...) and technical limitations (I think that only one program could use the internet connection at a time so opening the web browser stopped the emails from syncing) but in general it was quite a good smartphone for it's time.

And Pathway to Glory is still the best mobile game that I have played.

Wrong :)
The N-Gage (and all Symbian) was a truly multi-tasking OS. Yes, Web had a problem because it needed a WAP profile instead of a GPRS profile, while most other programs preferred a GPRS profile. All programs using a GPRS profile could share it.

Wasn't this a cool feature? :)

there was a nice application, Hotswap, which allowed hotswapping. It needed you to break the tabs holding the card on the side, but works. I did that on mine, and it works perfectly well.

Lol, every time I "enjoy" your supermaximised pics.
Never think abt making more quality pics, especially if device already shown to public?
Also, it's quite bad taste imho, to rip all information abt build/hwid/product code. IMEI hiding is more than enough.
Looks it's something like early B1 +- build. Here's B3.0 RH-47, that still have not final keypad layout. :)

What a sweet memory of great moments. I really miss the High Seizure On 1st N-Gage and Creature of the Deep on N-G 2.0. After touch screen and IAP comes phone games are no longer games...
