Amazon has purchased Touchco recently in order to boost their portfolio and strengthen their position as the top e-book reader seller at this point in time, as they are certainly feeling threatened with the Apple iPad’s recent announcement. Why Touchco? For starters, this company offers cheap multitouch panels that retail for around $10 per square foot, and is much more versatile compared to most resistive touchscreens as it can respond to pressure. Could this also open up a whole new door for apps on the Amazon Kindle in order to rival the iPad?
