SPOTLIGHT: Nokia's shift away from gaming onto music, TV

Nokia has decided not to develop mobile gaming handsets for a few years and instead focus on mobile music and mobile television. The decision means no new versions of the N-Gage gaming phone, which has sold poorly. The company said it will continue to focus on mobile music for the rest of the year and begin its push into mobile television next year. The company said the N-Gage did not effectively create a new category of gaming devices as it had hoped. Nokia learned that people want to play games on all sorts of devices. It plans to embed its gaming software into its Series 60 phones. Article
