The Glow4 (7.8") is capacitive using the "Kotl" brand capacitive sensor.
It has nothing to do with Neonode or zForce
This is based on a teardown that I did.
Have you written a teardown "review" (or report of your findings)? That would interesting.

Erm, I'm still trying to figure out how I destroyed the display.

Before I destroyed it, I was careful.
Afterwards I took the touch layer and the glow layer off.
There's a lot of glue in this puppy.
Currently, I've got one quadrant of the display working.
It started out as just a little bit missing.

The longer it goes with so few videos about it, the more I think it's a massive failure.

has 4 videos in the last week, one of which is not terribly related, and the other is a video about a different ereader from good(sic)ereader

Why do you say that?? Nooks usually never get a ton of video reviews. In fact even the Kindles only have a handful...so it's a bit early to call this a failure...

I have both devices.

Ok, here's a rough blog on the Glow4:
http://www.temblast.com/blogs/glow4/blog.htm
(It's a work-in-progress.)

I figured out how I killed the display.
The case is a bear to open and I apparently cracked a corner of the glass eInk display.
Over time and handling the crack propagated and gradually ruined the display.
The 6" Nooks all had plastic eInk displays.
