Synaptics, Inc. has just announced via press release that the Nexus One contains one of their ClearPad 2000 capacitive touchscreen sensors. The screen of the Nexus One is one of the most responsive touchscreens I've ever had the pleasure of using. It's not hard to see why Synaptics would want to brag about it. "Synaptics' proven touchscreen experience and track record in premier mobile phone design wins reflect our strong portfolio of touchscreen solutions. As a founding member of the Open Handheld Allianceā„¢ (OHA), we look forward to continuing partnerships with other Open Handset Alliance members as we execute on our innovative product roadmap supporting compelling human interface design." said Tom Tiernan, Synaptics CEO. Of course, a big part of any touchscreen's performance is the processor behind it. For that, Synaptics is lucky that the Nexus One also packs a 1GHz Qualcomm chip. It's interesting to note that, even with a better processor behind it, the Nexus One can't beat the iPhone in screen quality. The Nexus One did very well in the test, but Apple's opus is still undefeated. How much better will their next smartphone's screen be?
