HTC Tattoo has a Resistive touch screen unlike all other Android phones

Here’s some lame news, according to HTC’s “chief innovation officer” Horace Luke, the newly announced HTC Tattoo has a resitive touch screen and not a capacitive one like all the other Android phones released so far. This was probably done to keep cost down. It still sucks though.

Le Tattoo est pourtant moins confortable à utiliser que le Hero du fait d’un écran de petite taille (2,8 pouces). Est-il multipoint ?
Sur le Tattoo, nous utilisons un écran QVGA 2,8 pouces. Nous voulions vraiment offrir un design différent de celui du Hero pour qu’il ressemble plus à un téléphone mobile classique qu’à un véritable smartphone. En revanche, contrairement au Hero, le Tattoo utilise un écran résistif non multipoint. Nous avons fait des essais et nous nous sommes rendus compte que cette technologie n’est pas assez pratique à utiliser avec un écran de cette taille.

Bold part translation: The Tattoo has a non-multi-touch resistive screen

    Nothing beats a resistive screen…thank god there’s an android phone with resistive screen. Capacitive screens are good for gimmiks but fall flat on face when it comes to funtionality and accuracy of resistive screens.
