Touch screen technology in new Sony Readers: zForce from Neonode
I've posted it before in some of the threads, but now we have a press release with more details:
STOCKHOLM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Neonode Inc. (NEON.OB), the leading provider of optical touch screen solutions for hand-held and small to midsize devices, today announced that Sony has launched its new product line of Sony Readers, which uses Neonode´s optical touch screen technology that has been customized for Sony. For more information: http://news.sel.sony.com/en/press_ro...ase/58295.html.
Neonode’s patented touch screen technology, zForce™, supports high resolution pen writing in combination with market leading finger navigation including gestures, multi-touch, sweeps and much more. zForce™ uses no overlay (like resistive and capacitive touch screens) on top of the e-ink display thus creating a 100% clear window free from reflexes and parallax effects and produces a true paper like experience.
“We are very pleased to announce the most recent successful deployment of our zForce™ touch screen solution,” said Thomas Eriksson, CEO of Neonode Technologies AB. “Our zForce™ touch screen with fast, accurate, low power and high resolution pen support in combination with full finger support will greatly improve the user and reader experience.”
Neonode offers touch solutions that are more cost effective than any other high performance touch solution in the market today. zForce™ incorporates the functionality and performance features of traditional touch solutions like resistive and capacitive. zForce™ supports high resolution pen input, multi-finger touch, gestures like zooming combined with superior picture quality. zForce™ also reduces the power consumption for low power devices creating long standby/operation time. zForce™ is currently being integrated into several products such as mobile phones, mobile internet devices, e-books, digital picture frames and tablet PC’s.

Thanks for posting this - there seem to be a lot of questions about what kind of touchscreen these new readers have.

If only the Daily Edition was larger I'd be already pre-ordering one.
