This past year has brought more and more capacitive displays and it seems like resistive is making its exit, butÂ not yet! A company called Touchco has some technology that brings resistive devices accuracy and ease of use together with capacitiveâ€™s sensitivity. The new display–from what I can get out of the videoâ€”uses crossed cords that areÂ constantly updated, and as your finger presses the screen the lines touch and the screen takes that as a press, and it is also pressure sensitive.
The new screen device could bring a lot of changes to Windows Mobile phones and for the better. Capacitive is a very good display, but it does have some down sides like for example it does not support stylusâ€™s and for people like me in the winter up here in MN, we have layers of cloths and we would not be able to use a capacitive device or even worse when you get a capacitive screen really cold and bring it inside your house, it cracks. Those are something that make this cross technology a breakthrough not only for us, but for anyone that wants the best of the two.
