Rare is that an iPhone or iPad user has ever looked back at the stylus and thought that it could be of beneficial use to supplement the multi-touch interface of gestures and swipes. Perhaps that may ring true, although that does not mean that a stylus cannot add to the experience. Well, for the right user that is. BoxWave makes its own stride with a new stylus that has the claim to fame of a unique mesh tip, but is it enough to compel you to pick up the EverTouch stylus? Read on for our very complete thoughts on what a stylus can and cannot add in the touchscreen era.
MOTO Development Group released a study yesterday that compares the accuracy of the touch screens for six leading phones. If this sounds familiar to you, it's because back in January MOTO did this same test using an app to draw straight lines using a human finger. But critics of their earlier report said humans can't be consistent enough when drawing straight lines to provide accurate results, so MOTO did a new series of tests using a robot.
iSuppli, a market research firm that studies electronics, is saying that between the parts of the iPhone, Nexus One, and Motorola's Droid, it's the Droid's, not the iPhone's, that are worth the most. The news is especially surprising given that the Droid is also the worst in terms of hardware.
Almost immediately after the launch of the iPhone, competitors were trying to dethrone Apple with their own touchscreen handhelds. These days, if it doesn't have a touchscreen, it's yesterday's news, and touching the screen to interact with your phone is now commonplace. However, all touchscreens are not created equal, as a study published by MOTO labs (no relation to Motorola) confirms. The results show clear differences between the iPhone and others, exposing the copycats for what they are.
