RIM Patents a NEW Type Touchscreen?
It appears as though RIM is at it again, as they try to develop yet another new type of touch screen. We all remember the SurePress that they have on the Storm, and now it appears as though they are going with a hybrid between capacitive / resistive touchscreens. RIM is trying to take the advantages of both types of screens, and combine them to make one uber amazing screen. They are taking the ease of use from the capacitive screens and the stylus support that the resistive screen offers, and hoping to make one of the best touch screen devices on the market. The only downside to this, is that you lose the cost effectiveness that the resistive screens offer you, thus giving the impression that this will be a higher end device.
