Nokia + games = http://www.n-gage.com/

Maemo has nothing to do with N-Gage and the third party offering for
games is really modest for the average expectations of the E3
attendance, isn't it? Besides, have you looked the pictures of the
N-Gage booth? Do you really want to man a stand there?  ;)

I don't see this is something we need to push now.

Do you see the Maemo community there? If so, why?
