Capacitive touch panels in phones  expected to exceed resistive ones in 2010
The battle over touchscreen technologies have been heating up as more consumers look at smartphones. For the longest of times, resistive touchscreens seem to dominate the landscape of PDAs and mobile phones. Until recently, there has been a growing stance on utilizing capacitive touchscreens as they provide an almost seamless experience for users. The use of capacitive panels may increase tremendously as the latest Windows Mobile platform, which relied heavily on resistive touch previously, makes the conversion to it – much like how handsets running the Apple OS, webOS, and Android uses the technology on most of their devices. It's projected that capacitive touch panels will exceed handsets with resistive touch panels in 2010, according to industry sources. We're beginning to see this gradual change as Taiwan makers Wintek, Sintek Photronic, Cando, Emerging Display Technologies (EDT) and Giantplus Technologies have all ventured into the production of capacitive touch panels. Sintek is specifically increasing its monthly capacity to 24 million projected capacitive touch panels (3.5" equivalents) from its 5G plant.
