As for what we have now, well from what Ive researched there are vast repositories of games, both old and some semi new where one can get games for the N900. The very nature of the device is such that the onus is upon the user to do the necessary research to find what will work.

[edit] Frequently asked questions

[edit] Will N900 play games from big companies?

Nokia has publicly stated that they are fully committed to creating a proper channel for Premium content publishers to sell their content in a protected form via their Ovi Store. [1]

As for what we have now, well, from what I've researched there are vast repositories of games, both old and some semi-new where one can get games for the N900. The very nature of the device is such that the onus is upon the user to do the necessary research to find what will work.

There are numerous emulators where you can play thousands of old games for the NES, Game Boy, GBA, etc.

As for DOS games, it is yet to be seen if we can expect full compatibility, but rest assured, someone, somewhere is working on it.

The number of developers working on it is still relatively small.

Maemo is a developer's dream, but give it 6 months before you have precompiled, easy to use games…

My two cents for now. You have the full internet in your pocket! Isn’t that enough?

[edit] What if I want a game that is not yet available?

See above (where do I get software from)

[edit] All my previous phones have run Java games: why can’t I play them on N900?

Java is currently available for the N900 but requires some manual installation.
