Nokia N97 interactive demo showcases Facebook functionality

Published by at

An interactive demo has been added to the Nokia N97's product pages on the Nokia UK web site. The interactive demo showcases some of the key features of the upcoming phone, including the customisable homescreen and Facebook functionality. The demo also includes the ability to log in to your own Facebook account (using Facebook Connect) so you can see what it looks like on the N97. Read on for more details and screenshots.


The demo includes:

  • Media demo (Enjoy your media), which demonstrates the ability to capture, view and share (upload) photos and videos, listen to music and download games.
  • Homescreen demo (Personalise your homescreen), which shows how extra content can be added to the homescreen and rearranged according to your preferences.
  • Web, video and location demo (Go online), which shows the browser, the ability to watch video (Star Trek trailer) and location features (finding a local cinema).
  • Facebook widget demo (Socialise with your friends), which showcases some of the Facebook functionality including the ability to view friends status, update your own status, upload images and more. 

Here are some screenshots from the N97 demo:

Incidentally, a number of UK retailers are starting to add the N97 to their pre-order pages. The most recent we have spotted is MobileFun (aff), who indicate a launch date of 24th June and a price of £529.95.
