RIM tests with mixed capacitive and resistive screens
The war and intrigue over whether a capacitive or resistive screen is better can end it RIM with his new patent. It is a new screen that incorporates both sensors, we imagine that taking the best of each of the technologies. It seems that the single button on your Blackberry Storm has not finished well and they are looking to revolutionize the market again.
The new screen will be a precise element when we use a touch pen and we can continue to benefit from a fast response and multi-touch technology when we use our fingers to operate it. Pencil and handwriting recognition is highly appreciated in Asian countries, while in the West we are more of the capacitive.
At the moment it is only a patent, so surely it will be time until we see the technology applied in some product, although who knows.
