I know a few readers that are surely going to comment on this one:
Few weeks ago I wrote a small guide about the different touchscreens available for mobile devices (The Incomplete Guide to Touchscreens Technologies).
One of the things I wrote about capacitive screens was that they cannot be used for accurate operations or signature capturing.
Well, apparently HTC are just about to solve this limitation with a special stylus - developed as a company patent.
The stylus has a magnetic head, and due to the current induced by its movement relative to the capacitive screen is able to elicit the same electrical reaction as a finger, but with much more precision.
So simple yet so useful: a stylus for capacitive screens that will let you do all the activities which are hard to do without one.
