The Nokia N-Gage was a hybrid game system and mobile phone released in 2003. This little device runs the Series 60 User Interface (S60) software platform under the Symbian Mobile OS. Hardware wise, this device has an ARM 920T processor running at a whopping 104 MHz with 3.4 mb of internal memory. Released as a direct competitor to Nintendo’s famous Game Boy Advance, the goal for this device was to eliminate the need for consumers to carry around both a mobile gaming system as well as a cellular device, which at the time was a issue that many people faced. The N-Gage had a number of issues that kept it from becoming commercially successful, such as its launching price of $300 and the form of the device itself, which required users to hold the phone sideways against their head in order to make phone calls, leading to it’s nickname ‘the taco’. It had a short lived life of about 3 years but it has received a cult following among loyal fans.

Nokia reveals Ozo, a futuristic new camera for filming virtual reality

Designed for Hollywood, not consumers

When Microsoft bought Nokia’s handset business in 2013, two big questions hovered above all. The first was “why?” and we never got a convincing answer: Microsoft wrote off $7.6 billion in Nokia costs this month, higher than the purchase price. The second question was what would become of the rest of Nokia, which had just exited the business it had once dominated. The company said it planned to focus on maps, network infrastructure, and “advanced technologies” — but what those technologies would be went unsaid.

Today Nokia is beginning to lay out its vision. At an event for the entertainment industry in Los Angeles tonight, Nokia is announcing Ozo, a next-generation camera for capturing audio and video in 360 degrees. Nokia intends for the device, which is now in its preproduction phase, to become the default mode of shooting virtual-reality experiences for Hollywood, the media, and the advertising industry. A formal launch, along with a final sale price, is planned for the fall. But Ozo is not a consumer camera — the device is expected to sell in the mid-five figures.
