Rumor: Nokia to use Synaptics Capacitive Touch

Although there are really advanced resistive technologies out there capacitive is generally better when it comes to things like smartphones. If rumors coming out of DigiTimes is true, Nokia is tapping Synaptics to enhance its mobile phones and smartphones from resistive to capacitive touch. These phones will be launched in the third quarter of 2009. Sources also noted that multi-touch could be a possibility. Synaptics is considered the leader in capacitive touch technology and currently supplies touchscreen ICs to Samsung, High Tech Computer (HTC), Research in Motion (RIM) and others.
