This is AAM's photo gallery of a pre-production Nokia N900. This gallery should give you a good visual overview of the Nokia N900. For each photo I have added additional commentary to highlight some of the key features of the first Maemo 5 device. Also included are a number of comparison images, with the N900 side by side against the Nokia N97, Samsung i8910, Nokia E55 and two earlier Nokia Maemo devices (N810 and 770).
The N900's resitive screen means a stylus is an option and for fine control it's a useful addition. However it's not needed for day to day use (I've personally only used it when for the sketch application). Maemo 5 is very much build around a finger friendly UI philosophy.
