Nokia has whipped up a successor to its much-maligned N-Gage cell phone/game player that retains the original's core hardware, but has otherwise been redesigned to address the complaints of critics. In addition to being smaller than the original N-Gage, the new N-Gage QD will supposedly be more comfortable to use as a cell phone, and users will finally be able to swap game cartridges without removing the battery.
Given the original N-Gage's less than enthusiastic reception, it will be interesting to see how its successor fares. The N-Gage QD's $199 retail price might be a little stiff for some gamers, but carriers will no doubt be offering the phone at a discount, with strings attached of course.
