Nokia N86 8MP Review – Part 2 – Software

11. August 2009 at 02:35

In Part One of the Nokia N86 8MP Review I focused on the hardware and build quality of the handset. Today I intend to delve deep inside the N86 exploring the software aspect of the device. Just to quickly recap, the Nokia N86 8MP is Nokia’s new flagship camera-phone. The device sports 8GB of built in storage as well as a microSD card slot, and has all the now ‘standard’ features including Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS and a Digital Compass. The N86 has a built in FM transmitter too, along with the extraordinary 8 megapixel, Carl Zeiss wide-angle lens, setting itself way above it’s competition.

It’s been a long time but finally Nokia’s gaming platform, N-gage, is available for the Nokia N97. Albeit the N97 isn’t listed on the N-Gage website you can download N-Gage by opening the ‘Software update’.

There you need to download ‘N97 C: Phone memory update’ first and than the N-Gage application. After the download and installation process are finished you can navigate to the ‘Games’ folder and start enjoying the new N-Gage application. Unfortunately, not all N-Gage games are available for the N97 but you’ll find some good games for sure. After downloading the first games I noticed that the games are not fullscreen but 4:3 ratio. Why? Fullscreen would look much better.

Update: You can download N-Gage from here as well

In due course the game will be available on the website as well. As always a trial is given so that you get a idea of what the game is about.
