Purveyors of aging technology can rejoice as the U.S. preliminary injunction to ban state-side sales of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has been reversed. The Nexus is still currently Google's flagship smartphone, retaining the title since the time that the injunction had been granted, although the court had found that the reasoning behind the initial ban was not strong enough to withstand another major Samsung blow.
With all the tablet rumors and introductions we've been seeing the past few days, it looks like Apple has something new of its own, a patent it filed just showed up today that shows new touchscreen technology that could be used in future iPhones or tablets.
This patent covers the implementation of capitative touch sensors in the pixel that's used to display what's on the screen, giving far more accuracy when touching. This would also mean that because the capitative sensors are embedded the screen, it would remove the need for a separate capitative sensor, which could make for thinner displays and devices.
