The gaming phone is still alive

I thought with Nokia’s N-gage experiement had put the skids on the gaming phone experiment. Last week I came across this in Paddington station. Very interesting, shows operators and handset OEM’s still see the core gamer as a big enough demographic to position phones specially for that segment. Actually, I do see the sense of it, given that mobile gaming has been dominated by casual gamers, there must be a large community of core console and PC gamers out there who are untapped. With more sophisticated handsets and better quality mobile versions of console games, I can see why Operators still believe in the gaming phone. Isn’t Sega owned by Nokia though?? Wonder what they’re doing on a Sony Ericsson :)!
