HTC wants a stylus for capacitive screens
The war between capacitive and resistive displays is already a classic in consumer electronics. Finding the right balance is complex, and there are already manufacturers like RIM who work to bring the best of each technology to the screens of their future mobile phones.
HTC, which is fully committed to touch screens on its devices, has started a peculiar history in search of a solution that has as its protagonist the characteristic touch pen of resistive screens. They, according to a patent, want to develop a device that can also be used with capacitive screens, where the finger is the winner so far.
With the new interfaces focused on handling the screens with your fingers, the problem seems minor, but despite everything, it wouldn't hurt to have that stylus to give us efficiency and precision when we need it the most despite using a capacitive screen.
