Non-CES news is far and few between during these few days, but this ought to catch your interest – MOTO Development Group released a video and photographs of a touchscreen performance test that sees the Google Nexus One, the Apple iPhone, the Motorola Droid and the HTC Verizon Droid Eris lock horns. Their criteria for evaluation involved opening a basic drawing program while drawing a few diagonal lines across the screen slowly. Quality touchscreens should see you draw clean, straight lines even when you’re plodding along at tortoise speed, while the reverse holds true on an inferior touchscreen which is basically impossible to draw straight lines. Apart from that, pressure matters, where even a weak signal with the edge of your finger will elicit a response. Apparently, the Apple iPhone emerged as the winner, featuring “the most linear tracking with the least amount of stair-stepping”. Tied for second place would be the Droid Eris and Nexus One, while the Motorola Droid was placed last. Ah well, armed with this knowledge, will at affect your next full touchscreen phone purchase?
