Nokia has released an N-Gage gaming compatible client for its three recently released handsets: 5320 MusicXpress, N78 and N82. There has been no word on older handsets gaining the client, however. For example, the Nokia N73, Nokia N93i and Nokia N93.
According to the All About Symbian website, the gaming client effectively turns your Nokia phone into a games console. With it, you can find, try and buy high-quality made-for-mobile games. You can also connect with other players through the N-Gage Arena community. You can meet friends, find others to play multiplayer games, discuss topics on the message boards and via live chat and participate in tournaments and hosted events.
This means that, with the N-Gage application on your phone, you can create a Friends List, send and receive private messages and take part in instant messaging style chat. N-Gage Points can be earned for playing games and participating in community activities.
