    Had all the above, but after using screen wipes and now a screen protector, seems to have cured it.

    Could also be the tackball, as also cleaned that as well based on others comments on the N1 threads.

    I periodically roll it around for a minute or two using a lint-free pad dampened with IPA (spectacle cleaning solutions, camera lens cleaners etc).
