...i finally decided to go for it. My dilemma whether to go for the original bulky ngage or the newer sleeker qd version was put quietly to rest when i heard that nokia had stopped churning out the original ngage.So , qd it is. I am pretty excited to lay my hands on this gaming device but a slight dissapointment exists. I would have loved it more had nokia not decided to strip qd of stereo audio and mp3 player and fm radio receiver. That would have been one hell of a package. But still, ngage qd can play mp3.yes! all one needs is a player. There are quite a few of them available in the net as java applications that can be downloaded to the game pad. However the mono quality will make the sound cruddy and poor. Still , Qd can play videos in a variety of formats from real media to avi. Ultimately qd is for gamers. Others will be dissapointed.With hot swap slots for the game cards gaming has been made easy and smooth.There are some hot titles in the pipe : sims , fifa , splinter cell , tony hawk pro skater ...a game designed specially for engage is also getting ready and that should boost the gaming experience.....

.NGAGE urself......

Mathew Reilley is the undisputed king of action. The journey begins on page 1 and Mathew launches into a ruthless fast-paced action drama that literally leaves you gasping for breath. The stunt scenes are depicted so minutely that you will literally be seeing a movie unwind in front of your eyes. The scenes linger long after you have closed the book and that is the Reilley power.

I discovered another one of his dynamites in 'scarecrow'. With the awesome spectacle of 'icestation' - my only other reilley tryst - fresh in my mind i wanted no less than it in scarecrow. No dissapointments! Half-way through the drama the scarecrow has already thrown up some awesome stunt scenes , adrenaline pumping action and lethal gadgetry. The mordernity of the warfare is unmistakable. From strange killer weapons to technological prototypes Reilley pulls us through a supersonic maze of a hi frequency duel.

The jist is this : The scrarecrow is back. This famous warrior of the US marines who pulled off the impossible in the world of white in 'icestation' is no longer the hunter. He is the hunted. He is a part of a hit-list of a bunch of names that should no longer exist after 12:00 noon! And he is the most important of them all. With ruthless bounty hunters in his trail he is running for life. But scarecrow is not one to run. He fights back!
