My trusty Nokia 6110 phone bought in beginning of year 1998 was coming to an end. I needed to get a new phone and fast. I was going to buy a cheap new phone, but Nokia decided to lower the price of N-Gage to about 100e.Thus giving out ~100-150e for any other phone with no real advantages (IMHO) over my old phone seemed quite stupid. As we all know, N-Gage isn't much of an gaming deck when compared to eg. Nintendo Gameboy Advanced. But Nokia N-Gage runs on Symbian OS 6 and this makes it possible to cheaply use various high quality applications.
WHAT'S NEEDED TO GET FULL POTENTIAL?
Emulators are programs which emulate another system completely. You need to get some ROM files (data files of the original game) for these emulators to work. I'm not going to provide these to you, you'll just have to search the internet. I'm sure you'll find plenty.
Java midlets are small Java Mobile Edition based programs, which are very easy to create. These can be used to add new applications or games to N-Gage and also provides the most easy way to create your own programs (I'm not going to tell here, how does one write code) but if you have ever done any programming, this might be a great new way to spend some time.
