Anonymous, 02 Sep 2009Sorry it is resistive screen not capacitivePerhaps my link is bad. The man over there (a Nokia rep) says it's capacitive. Otherwise, it would be very nice if you came with some sort of proof. We'd better hope for a capacitive screen.
Here's the link again
my only suggestion to nokia is that they maintain this level design & specs on their handsets...
look at the features,it differs significantly from 5800 only by its memory capacity,but the price???5 megapixels is silly without good lens quality,and nokia seems to love "5" so much,satio is just around the corner with 12 megapixels
this phone is really cool. look @ all the effort people is putting into getting to really know this work of art...
capacitvie or resistive, it is an excellent piece of work...
Nokia you are the defination for "all in good time". What a sleek looking phone.
ZURQ, 02 Sep 2009the touchscreen on this is it resistive or capactive??Sorry it is resistive screen not capacitive
what is the price of nokia X6 and when this phone are avaliable in the stores
as per the below video link it has capacitive screen, as presented "solid glass touch screen", so it is a copy from Omnia HD
Found out a hands-on video on youtube with a Nokia representative showing of the new phone. He clearly says at the beginning of the clip that the very first difference from the 5800 is the capacitive touch, "... which is very different from resistive touch," as he says.
This is not a hands-on video from some website making speculations, it's a Nokia rep playing with the device. Kinetic scrolling also works like a charm.
It's not bad!! Looks way better than the 5800 and it's cousins... Yet, the specs are not so impressive... there's nothing that isn't already out there!
just a small but useful little bit of info for those that still think the screen is capacitive:
capacitive screens can only be used with your finger; no glove, no stylus, no nothing besides your finger(s).
seeing as it has handwriting recognition, unless you plan on writing with your finger it can't be capacitive.
nokia never said anything about a capacitive screen, and all of it's touchscreens have always used resistive screens, so unless proven otherwise you should assume it is resistive.
that being said, i'm open to any argument any of you might have to prove the screen is in fact capacitive.
seeing as capacitives don't work with a stylus, it might be a "hybrid", but that's highly unlikely.
For those asking about the type of the touchscreen (capacitive/resistive). I'm also interested. Would be nice if either you or GSMArena got a reliable source to prove whether it's resistive or capacitive.
The handwriting recognition doesn't mean that the screen must be resistive. From the pictures and the few videos on youtube (and the official "what's in the box") I see no stylus or even a slot for a stylus. And because the interface hasn't changed, I don't think Nokia just ditched the stylus for no reason. So a reason to suspect capacitive stuff here.
Fingers crossed, but please post some proof.
The phone is capacitive touch and supports handwriting recognition like Samsung i8910 Omnia HD (which is also capacitive)
