Instinct gets demoed on video again

When will device manufacturers get it? The thing that makes iPhone stand out is its capacitive touch screen, which is much better suited for finger navigation. Why do these idiot manufacturers keep using pressure sensitive screens, which have much better precision with a stylus, and not include a stylus? The Voyager was good, but after using it for 2 weeks it got frustrating because the touch screen does not easily allow you to do things like touch type 49+ words per minute, like is very possible on the iPhone because the screen is much more responsive. The only way to make a real iPhone killer is to build a device just like this with a capacitive touch screen, not a pressure sensitive one that is less sensitive.

I know exactly wat ur talking about I have the Rokr E6 which has a very high sensitive touch screen because it uses a stylus, I had a chance to use one of my friends samsung glyde. Honestly I was not impressed the touchscreen is so annyoing because it based on the pressure of ur touch.

That's where both of ou are wrong. It depends on how they make the screen. The Samsung Glyde uses capacative technology just like the iphone and many people complain that it's even worth than the LG Voyager's touch screen. LG's first touch screen phone came out before the iphone called the LG Prada. It used a capacative screen but people complained about their fingures hirting because they can't use their nails and they can't use a stylus. So the update is the LG Viewty and many people say its very responsive! So it doesn't matter on the technology. The worst responsive touch screen phone uses what you guys say Capacative technology. You are no smart S. Also pressure sensitive is more cheap, so it is a economical aspect. Also, people complain that the Iphone lacks physical keys and the voyager makes their problem up with tactile keys.

You make a good point. I was just saying from experiance I got to use qiute a few touch screen phones with a styles and with out it just seems to me the ones that use stylus are respinsive. And you were right about it does matter how they make the screen to

This device looks awesome! And would surely be a true competitor to iPhone if it only had a finger responsive capacitive touch screen. Do they do this (not include one) to save money?

Sprint still doesn't have a chance. They are just too bad.

Sprint's limit will be pretty soft and only applies to Data cards and phone as modem service. It does not apply to phones with Vision/Power vision plans. Also, you have to exceed the cap 2 out of 3 consecutive months in order to get in trouble.

it sucks to see a good phone like that go to waste with a carrier like sprint

Well obviously you are one of the lucky ones, unlike the other 1.2 millions customers who decided to leave sprint last quarter. And if you have signal when your friends don't, is that because you guys are camping in the middle of nowhere where Sprint has the higher coverage, or just because you're friends have crappy service with T-Mobile or a prepaid service?

You, sir, are an anomoly. I live within minutes of the World Headquarters and that's the WORST place for coverage. If you ever have a tecchnical question, commit several days to fucking with those idiots on the phone. At least lately, they've brought all phone support back to the states. Theuy proudly announce the midwest city in which they work when they answer the phone.
