Capacitive and Resistive

Most  Winmo devices using resistive or single touch technology which requiring sharp edge stylus for touchscreen interaction.  When Apple iphone release, the display come with capacitive technology or to simplify as ‘multiple touch’ technology (or multitouch).  What makes capacitive screen responsive is capable of detecting multiple point and reading large pressure point by using finger.

Thus capacitive increase ergonomics and finger friendly than a small point stylus. So this is the main ‘recipe’ what makes iphone somehow better than winmo devices, imagine if iphone was using similar resistive screen with stylus which os no much different with winmo devices at all.

Capacitive doesnt mean the iphone is faster than winmo, just the mac base UI built simple and faster.  After HTC release the  Touch HD2, winmo is actually faster and responsive such like the  iphone OS. Its the different platform but truly capacitive has ergonomics purpose for finger friendly.
