    I found this:

    N-Gage 2

    Looks like the Gage will be unveiled on April 14th here in London at Leicester Square.

    I have a feeling that this will be the real thing. We'll see this week on the 14th at the unveiling/conference here in London.

    they have obviously been listening to peoples opinions on the original. Most the changes people wanted have been done.

    Good move on Nokia's part, now let's hope they remember to bring out the real N-Gage 2 and make it available with the QD's new features and also with the original N-Gage features [​IMG]

    Good question, do you think there would any demand for such a device on CDMA?

    CDMA is the network standard used by Verizon, Sprint, Alltel, Cricket, Virgin Mobile and a host of other providers in the US.

    CDMA

    Code-Division Multiple Access.

    CDMA is a digital wireless technology. It is a general type of technology, implemented in many specific technologies. But the term "CDMA" is also commonly used to refer to one specific implementation: IS-95 - a mobile-phone technology that competes with technologies such as GSM.

    CDMA is a "spread spectrum" technology, which means that it spreads the information contained in a particular signal of interest over a much greater bandwidth than the original signal.

    Unlike many competing technogies, CDMA has no hard limit for the number of users who may share one base station (tower). Instead, with CDMA, additional users can connect until the base station determines that call quality would suffer beyind a set limit.

    CDMA systems have been in commercial operation since 1995. CDMA networks operate in the 800 and 1900 MHz frequency bands with primary markets in the Americas and Asia. IS-95 CDMA systems are sometimes refrred to as cdmaOne. The next evolutionary step for CDMA to 3G services is cdma2000.

    It depends on where you are. If you're in a major city or suburban area, GSM will work great. Go out into the boonies, CDMA offers digital as well analog (serves as a fallback since analog is well-established across the US since it was the first cellular network standard used before digital networks like GSM, CDMA or TDMA came along).

    im guessing the boonies is the countryside. Cool, so an n-gage version of this would allow the farmers a break from milking, and allow them to play on the arena, right?

    Yes boonies would mean anywhere outside of a large metropolis or suburban area. GSM has always been digital so there was never any analog fallback like you have with CDMA.

    So this cdma technology, is it likely to be in the n-gage 2 when ever that arrives? I guess if they want to reach everyone then it should be. But it seems to be selling itself as an urban/ street phone, so perhaps not to cut cost?

    I do not know, Nokia is a GSM phone manufacturer, they do make CDMA handsets but they are primarily concerned with GSM phones. Developing a CDMA phone should not be more expensive than a GSM handset so they might consider making one but it's highly unlikely since as I stated above, Nokia is primarily concerned with GSM.
