N-Gage application on N97

Hmmm .. am I just missing something? I can find the N-Gage app on my new N97, and when I try to install the sis grabbed from n-gage.mobi/d it says it is not compatible with the N97 and wont install.

Anyone know where I'm going wrong?

Ha Ha .. well that would explain why I can't find it then! Typical that just when there are finally a few N-Gage games that I'm actually interested in and I get a phone that wont support it. Look forward to it coming online :-)

Yesterday when I followed the N-Gage link via the Ovi bookmark in the web browser it went to a page which seemed to think I was using a 5800 instead of an N97. It's still doing this which I presume is a mistake on Nokia's part and maybe a mis-detection.

However, today I used the N-Gage bookmark, and it's got N97 listed as one of the devices and the page that allows you to get the N-Gage software is working (around 10MB download) so it looks like they've now made the N-Gage client available for N97 users. The N-gage website looks rubbish on the N97 though - very pixelated and like it has been built for much smaller screens, clicking the link to "news" brings up a page with very little on it.

Wierd? I downloaded the sis (again) via the n-gage link from the web browser and got exactly the same error message (can not install, etc).

Has anyone actually got N-Gage working on an N97?

GSM Arena

According to GSM Arena there is now a version that is available for the N97. Version 1.20 (1511) should be compatible. However I'm still getting the same error on N-Gage.com too.
