I wanna get myself a stylus and the one that comes for the Nokia N97 looks sleek, and where I live, it comes at an equivalent $2 which is cheap



My question is, the touchscreen for the N97 is resistive, not capacitive (like in the Defy) so will this stylus work without problems on my phone?

Other than your finger or any other part of your body, nothing will work on capacitive screen.
