A small request/ concern but would be appreciated. - Is it possible to reconfigure the N97 touch screen interface for lefties? Scrolling down a page whilst trying to read or do other things is a minor irritation (albeit bearable).
If its not currently possible I recon this is something Nokia should look into for future updates given their generally practical phone designs. Its prompted me to use my right hand a bit more naturally for this design..
Anyone with any ideas?
I am a lefty as well and what I have found is the it is easier for me to reconfigure my brain to adapt to the right handed world that it is for me to wait on the world to reconfigure the right handed devices ( take for example a mouse )
I thinkI remember hearing something about a "LEFT SCALE" of something like that, which basically measures how "left" you are.
So in a scale of 1 to 10. I would consider myself a 3 o 4 left. I only use my left hand to write, eat and a few other things. But for everything else I use the right, like you said using the mouse, kicking a ball, playing bowling, catching a ball in baseball, etc. I am better with my right than with my left. I know it sounds odd.
But my sister for example she is like a 9 left. She does everything with her left hand, bowling, mouse she tries with her right but finds it difficult and therefore for her is a lot harder to use her right side.
So for some lefthanded is a lot harder than for others.
What I have noticed with the N97 is that if I pick the phone with the right hand iis fine to scroll up and down, but if I pick the phone with the left is annoying because you have the thumb in the middle of the screen whilst you scroll but is not such a big issue I guess I can live with that
