Pretty much all modern smartphones and tablets are capacitive. The previous generation of windows mobile (pre 7) and Palm devices used resistive screens. With a few exceptions, if it comes with a stylus, it's probably resistive. If you see a no name Android tablet for sale with stupid cheap pricing, it's almost certainly resistive and best avoided at any price. I was a long time windows mobile user and still miss having that stylus for quick hand written notes. I don't miss anything else about WM.
