About this shirt: Nokia NGage
This shirt features the ninth of the 12 Heroes, the Nokia NGage! Released by Nokia in 2002, it was a product that was born before its time.
Combining a handheld gaming device and a mobile phone it offered 3D graphics (including Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Tomb Raider!).
In an age of expensive mobile data its latent potential for location-based gaming was mostly left untapped. Despite its quirkiness I loved mine, so it’s definitely one of my favourite “Handheld Heroes”!
