Nokia closes the books on N-Gage

Nokia closes the books on N-Gage
We have been expecting to see Nokia suspend N-Gage and close down shop since mid July, when the company shut down its Vancouver-based N-Gage game development division that was, actually, one of the largest. Nokia has just announced that they will no longer develop games for the platform, although all current titles will remain available at Ovi Store until September 2010. Players will be able to share their scores over N-Gage until the end of next year when the manufacturer will finally pull the plug on the game portal.  

So, what is your opinion? Is it likely that the company keeps churning out game-oriented devices in the future, even if not N-Gage-based, or you rather think Nokia will ultimately give up on this particular market?
