Nokia demonstrates Super Sensitive touch technology on the Lumia 920... using mittens
0. phoneArena 05 Sep 2012, 10:47 posted on
As awesome as smartphone touchscreens may be, using them while wearing gloves is pretty hard, if not impossible. Sure, that isn't much of a problem if you live in California, but in places like Helsinki, that's an issue. Apparently, Nokia has been bothered by that and came up with Super Sensitive touch technology, which it showed off today during the Lumia 920's announcement...

how about just use voice? seems more appropiate in this kind of situation
nokia, you need something like google voice or siri! not super sensitive screens

I'd prefer using my fingers rather than my voice to control my phone any day.

So if you accidentally hit the power button while in your pocket how will the screen differentiate contact with your pocket from contact with a glove? Does this mean accidental unlock and calling are a possibility with this tech?

That's where slide to unlock comes in, and not touch to unlock.

Fair point. Ok so if it doesnt unlock but say you r walking around the constant "touching" caused by your movement and the pocket material constantly rubbing the screen could cause it to not turn the screen off? This is just a qustion - im not saying it will happen. Just asking
