Like I said before, the N97 is a good handset but lacked a few things here and there to be, what I consider ‘complete’. One of the things was it was not loaded with the company’s N-Gage gaming platform app. Although a few games like Spore and Guitar Rock Tour were present, they don’t fall under the N-Gage umbrella.
With the very latest Symbian OS and S60 UI on board it should have been part and parcel of the package but it was apparently not ready I guess. However, the handset is now listed on the N-Gage site as a compatible device for the system. However, other Touchscreen S60 handsets like the new 5530 and 5800 XpressMusic handsets don’t seem to feature anywhere just yet.
