Video reveals that pinch to zoom is possible on resistive touchscreens for WM
To this day, Windows Mobile still relies heavily on resistive touchscreen technology which is increasingly being left out to dry in favor of the potentials that capacitive display technology exhibits. The popular pinch gesture was born thanks partly to the rise of capacitive displays used by handsets like the iPhone and Palm Pre, but one Windows Mobile handset user has been vigilant in getting the pinch gesture to work on a resistive display. One xda-developers member has finally been able to achieve pinch to zoom in the Opera Mobile web browser on the resistive display found on the HTC Touch Pro2. Naturally a moment of silence comes to mind as the video shows off the bounty of his hard work – which apparently took 4 months to complete. It is made possible on the handset thanks to a small app that exists in between the touchscreen and Opera Mobile which ultimately allows for this popular gesture to finally happen on a resistive touchscreen. Although it's not made public just yet, it's expected to become available soon so that other Windows Mobile handset owners out there can join in on the fun.
