Nokia Could Use Synaptics Capacitive Touchscreens In Future Smartphones

Labels: , , , ,

If this is true, this would be extremely great news for future Nokia touchscreen devices. Nokia is often criticized for using resistive touchscreens on both the 5800 and the N97, but it looks like the future will turn out much sweeter for some consumers. Rumour has it that Nokia could use Synaptics capacitive touchscreen technology in their future handsets. We could see this technology implemented as soon as Q3 of this year, so it's not too far away. "The first Nokia device to use a capacitive touchscreen are described as a 'high end handset and smartphone'." I hope that they use this in the Nokia N97, but that's just my wishful thinking - because it won't happen. I think that it could be implemented in those spinoff N97 devices, since it would be a good start. Looks like I will hold off from buying a phone until these devices are available. By the way, the above photo is just a concept photo made by Fabien Nauroy.
