Nokia recently announced a major price break for its handheld gaming/phone device, the N-Gage QD. The old price of $199 has been cut to $99 and games which were selling for $35 are now to be released at the $15-25 mark. If you don't know, I get great pleasure out of lambasting the N-Gage and the N-Gage QD. I think that the device tries to be to many things and the original design was so terrible that they had to release the QD only 9 months after the N-Gage launch.

Many gaming sites are saying that Nokia is finally seeing an upswing in market share and that this pricing move is an agressive strategy to gain more. I see it as a last ditch effort to get rid of the many N-Gage QD's piling up in warehouses. Sales of the system have been dismal and with the recent launch of the Nintendo DS and the upcoming launch of the Sony PSP, the handheld market is only getting more competitive. Nokia will, one of these days, realize they made a huge mistake and simply take the loss and just stick to making phones.
