ABSTRACT
The article announces the roll out of cellphone maker Nokia's online gaming service N-Gage as it expands into mobile Internet services. Nokia also opened its social networking site Share on Ovi, which allows people to share photos and videos and is built on technology acquired with the U.S. firm Twango, a spokesman for the company said. The gaming service and the media sharing site are among the cornerstones of Nokia's big push into mobile services under its new Ovi brand. N-Gage is cited as the most gaming-optimized device.
