Did you know your N-Gage games are locked to a single device?

Did you know your N-Gage games are locked to a single device?

I initially wrote my first impressions of the Nokia N81 8GB device back in November 2007 with the intent to post a more detailed review after the N-Gage gaming service launched since that was one of the primary reasons for the device. When N-Gage finally did launch, I loaded up some games and setup my account first on my Nokia N95-3 since it was my primary Nokia S60 device due to the HSDPA support here in the U.S. I then tried to setup my N81 8GB to use with the service (and most recently tried with the new N82 I received) and found out their is a fatal flaw in the N-Gage system, the service is locked to a single device and not to a customer's account.

Sprint announces Samsung Moment Google Android device, which would you buy?

Sprint announces Samsung Moment Google Android device, which would you buy?

After using the HTC Hero on Sprint now for over a week I have almost made the decision to add a Sprint account to my mobile arsenal, even though I don't have the strongest reception in my area. Sprint just has too many extremely compelling devices for me to resist and I may just have to figure out a way to make it work. The latest announcement brings us the Samsung Moment launching on 1 November for $179.99. This is the second Google Android device and it has a full QWERTY slide-out keyboard. I need to get my hands on it and see how it compares to the outstanding HTC Sense UI experience on the Hero.
