Nokia CEO chats about the N97 and Gravity at D conference

I pre-ordered a Nokia N97 from the Nokia USA site (like I need another Nokia device, right?) and after watching the demo given by a Nokia employee (wasn’t that Davis Fields from the Nokia Messaging team?) at the All Things D conference I am getting more excited about the device arriving. I was also pleased to see Nokia demo Gravity on the N97 because I think that application really shows how developers can make for a wonderful experience on the S60 platform. Check out the video below from the conference.

Do you use Gravity on your S60 device? It runs well on every device I have tried (5800, E71, E75, and E71x so far). Anyone else pre-order the N97 too? We don’t know when they are coming, but it should be in June, which starts next week.

I have pre-ordered a N97 also and I can’t wait. The more I see about it, the more and more I am liking it. I hope it ships soon!!

Are those scratches from nails on the screen of the N97 (visible in the video)? I have never used a touchscreen phone but I have seen on various demos that the used their nails for clicking and choosing and also swiping which this phone apparenly supports. I immediately thought those marks could be from that swiping motion if it is made by the users nail. Anyone have experience with this?

As far as scratches on the touchscreen is concerned, I would recommend anyone to get a screenprotector for the screen. From previous touch screens, I know that you will get scratches on them over time and this is so easily prevented. Usually, I will add a screen protector on the very first day I get a new touch screen device.
