The only difference that I know of the two versions (I've never played, and don't think I ever want to) is that the first one you had to take apart, remove the battery, insert the game chip, replace the battery, put the back cover back on, hit about a million buttons, wait a while, and you could finally see the start menu.  I think the QD can put the card right into the side.


Well the sad thing is that what you said is not really overexaggerating. You actually did have to go through all of that to play a game on the N-Gage. On the QD, they put in a game slot so you didn't have to deal with the battery, and they added a "Game" button so you didn't have to navigate tons of menus just to play a game.

Well at least they did something right.  I also heard they took out the MP3 capabilities?

Yeah, in order to cut down on the price they removed the MP3 player.

In another unexpected turn of events, Iwata of Nintendo came to Nokia's president and punched him in the face, procalimed "you suck" and walked away.

Or was that expected?

I actually remember to a little report on this for an engineering class in high school.  It actually did sound like a good idea, at the time.  Nokia just screwed it up.
