Want to use your fork on a Nokia Lumia 920? Go right ahead, the screen can take it.
Nokia’s Lumia 920 (and 820) both feature the new Super Sensitive Touch™ screen display, developed by in conjunction with Synaptics and their ClearPad™ Series 3. The new feature, the first of its kind in a mobile phone, will allow consumers to use their gloved hands to manipulate their phones for the first time.
But it’s not just gloves. Those with long fingernails or just wanting to use a stylus or any other object will also be just fine with the technology. Toss in Corning’s Gorilla Glass 2 for protection and you have a scuff free, universally usable touch display on your smartphone.
In the above videos you can see this being demonstrated, once again by our Russian friends, when they manipulate the screen by using a metal fork. Sure, it’s not the first thing that comes to mind when using our phone but it’s darn cool to be able to do that, we suppose.
The video also shows some more practical gloved-use and we also grab a peek of Angry Birds ROOST and some other bits of the OS.
