Helsinki: Nokia has delayed the launch of its gaming service N-gage to "early 2008" from this month due to delays in software testing, a spokesman for cellphone maker said on Thursday.

"We found one more issue which had to be solved before we could open the service," spokesman Kari Tuutti said. The gaming service, together with a music shop and mapping services, is one of the cornerstones of Nokia's large push into mobile Internet services under its new "Ovi" brand.

Nokia unveiled the long-awaited gaming service at a large media event in August, saying at the time it would be available globally in November.
