Four years before Apple merged the iPod with the cellphone, Nokia unveiled a hybrid device of its own. The N-Gage was a mobile phone/portable game console built for the Game Boy crowd. Sadly, it failed on both fronts. As Wikipedia recounts, the N-Gage made a poor gaming device, in part because its buttons (note the right-side keypad) were designed primarily for phone use. And the handset's clunky design, which some critics referred to as a "taco," made the N-Gage one of the ugliest smartphones known to humankind.
