    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.

    I like that RIM is looking into other ways to take advantage of touch screens. That's why they are they input kings of the smartphone world.

    Any word of backward compatibility for storm1 users, or is it waaaaaay too early to even hope for a rumour of that?

    Well done dream. This is very interesting. I however can't help but think about what this technology would actually be like to use. I personally like the surepress technology that the Storm has and from everything I hear the Storm 2 is supposed to be even better. I guess we will just have to wait and see what this will be like until it is actually incorporated onto a device.

    In what way would it be backwards compatible?
