Whats the point? Looks fairly useless and gimmicky to me.

best touch advance....?

The way I can use my Nokia 920 with gloves on or even use with any item, pen, keys, banana!! Awesome at a football match when it is sub zero, will be great when skiing under the Matterhorn in a couple of weeks too.

I did not realize the Nokia 920 could do this.

Is it not a capacitive screen? I have heard of the extremely durable and scracth resistance of it, but not that you could use any object whatsover to control the touches.

This constant hijacking of threads to promote one's love of a company's products is so tiresome. I suppose it is what it is.

OT: Maybe Sony just beat them to it.



I don't really think Sony patents tech too often.



                                  

afaik Nokia was the first to announce such a feature with the Lumia 920 and Sony made the Xperia Sola capable of this with an update even before the Lumia 920 released

Dam, was hoping Samsung would go for a different design this time round. Seems very similar to the GS3

I have the phone, it was released before Lumia, I don't get why sony didn't make a big deal out of it like Nokia did.



Good for them. I think it's a great idea and it's a shame that Sony puts it only in Sola and not any other high-end smartphone as a possibility. I hate when the screen gets dirty...



So it is happening...PS4 preorder.

Greatness Awaits!

Maybe they will if they put it on one of their more decent phones.
