    You mean capacitive, and yes.

    Thanks man,

    I did a few searches for "capacitive" and nothing really came up.

    Any phone with true multitouch is capacitive.

    No touchscreen uses heat to sense a touch.

    The iPhone is not heat sense - it is capacitive just like most other glass screens

    I'm sure some salesman somewhere said that it was heat sensitive because a girl's fingernails won't work, etc. Its now a "feature" :rolleyes:

    One is a light sensor, the other is a proximity sensor. No heat sensor

    While Im sure you guys are right, have any of you held like a cold can for a little and the tried to do things on your phone? When I had the droid, my fingers had to be normal temp. If I tried to press things when my fingers were cold it wouldnt respond well at all.

    Havent tried with my Inc.

    I'm pretty sure that the home menu back and search buttons are heat activated right?

    I doubt it, I'm pretty sure they are all capacitive. Do a google search if you are interested in understanding what capacitive touch is exactly - some may find it interesting if they are nerds :p

    no phone has the TouchScreen that the IPhone has - the IPhone reads your body heat and static electricity - heptictouch

    Thats what i had read, and most of the talk about the screen being capacitive was about the 4 buttons at the bottom of the phone

    The screen isn't heat sensitive, it's capacitive. Your fingers distort the electrostatic field (which is why you don't need to apply pressure). not heat related.

    It would be cool if there was a stylus available to use for texting and such. I use swype and sometimes have trouble seeing where the next letter is due to my fat fingers lol. I think I could double my speed with a stylus.
