HTC Droid Incredible uses a new type of multitouch display
Shortly after the Google Nexus One was introduced, which is manufactured by HTC, there were reports of issues regarding its multitouch display. It appeared that if your fingers would cross each others axis, that the display wouldn't register their location properly. Since the Nexus One is no longer coming to Verizon, as announced earlier, people have been wondering if the HTC Droid Incredible is using the same capacitive display and would be subject to the same problems as the Nexus One. This seems to not be the case, as shown by AndroidCentral. It appears the problem with the Nexus One is a result of the type of capacitive screen used, which is a Synaptics ClearPad 2000, but the HTC Droid Incredible uses newer capacitive technology, which is an Atmel maXTouch mxt224. This newer type has unlimited multitouch support and faster response times, down to 4ms. It is also expected that the Atmel maXTouch capacitive screen will also be used on the upcoming HTC EVO 4G for Sprint.
