There are different schools of thought when it comes to a capacitive touchscreen display, where one of them involves accepting input from a stylus or a finger. This would certainly make the display a whole lot more versatile especially in the mobile arena. To make matters more favorable, a versatile display such as this could work well across the continents – after all, Asian markets do place some importance on handwriting recognition and stylus input. Hitachi could be pretty close to a new all-purpose display as their touchscreen panels can react to gloves, fingernails, and non-conducting items. Expect a commercial release of these panels from Hitachi sometime in the second half of next year.
