FingerSense from Qeexo enables more control via touch

by: Simon HillNovember 19, 2012
Touchscreens are very accessible and they’re easy to use, but how do we take advantage of the technology to perform more complex interactions? Multi-touch and gestures have opened up new possibilities, but what if the screen could tell what was interacting with it? That’s the idea behind Qeexo’s FingerSense – the device can tell the difference between a fingertip, a nail, or a knuckle, as well as a stylus.

by: Susan ElleryFebruary 2, 2010

Google Nexus One

Google announced today that it will be rolling out an over the air update to all Nexus One owners. The update will finally bring multi-touch to an Android handset in the US with pinch to zoom functionality being added to the browser, gallery, and maps. The update will also address that 3G connectivity issue which has been plaguing the Nexus One and adds Google Goggles to the handset as a default application. Last but not least, Google Maps has been updated to include night-mode maps, search suggestions based upon map history, and synchronization of starred maps between your handset and desktop.

Dell’s Mini 5 Android tablet unveiled in a leaked hands-on video

by: Susan ElleryJanuary 14, 2010

Dell officially unveiled its Android-powered Mini 5 tablet at CES last week and introduced the slate as a 5 inch concept device. Dell released a few renderings for eye candy but was silent on the specs for this sweet looking device. Thanks to a video posted on YouTube, we can get a closer look at this slate in action. The leaked video reveals an integrated GSM radio connected to Viettel, a multi-touch browser, a custom onscreen keyboard, and Dell’s custom Android interface. No word on pricing or availability for this slate but we are hoping this one comes fast and cheap. Hit the jump for the full three minute hands-on video.

Google speaks of upgraded Nexus One “Enterprise” and reason for current lack of multi-touch

by: Chuck ZichJanuary 11, 2010

While on stage with th Wall Street Journal’s  Walt Mossberg, a Google Engineering VP was recently heard speaking about an upgraded Nexus One Enterprise version which would include a better battery and physical keyboard.  Naturally, he also spoke of more models such as a budget version, which always seem to follow halfhearted, noncommittal comments about future products.  The original question was also brought up in a separate conversation with Andy Rubin, who stated something along the same lines of the Nexus One being the first in a line of ever improving models.  Again, this seems to be a given that with success of a certain product, development of future iterations always [...]

Acer Liquid A1 to get Android 2.0 update, multi-touch by March 2010?

by: Susan ElleryJanuary 4, 2010

Acer A1 Liquid

According to French blog, Mobinaute, Acer France unofficially confirmed that the Acer Liquid A1 will be updated to Android 2.0 in March 2010. The blog also hints that the upgrade may activate multi-touch, a feature typically seen on European Android phones and not their American counterparts. No word on whether the currently underclocked processor on the Liquid A1 will be unchained and allowed to operate at its full 1GHz capacity. If Acer did the unthinkable and incorporated multi-touch and 1GHz of processing power into this Android 2.0 update, then the Liquid A1 would become one the top Android phones and a very worthy competitor to the [...]
