Moto ran a robotic finger test on 6 leading touchscreen smart phones to see how well they registered a robot's loving touch.If the future is all about touchscreen interfaces, then performance of the screen in registering where it's been touched is pretty important. International design firm
Some of the phones did remarkably poorly, like the BlackBerry Storm and the Motorola Droid. The iPhone, Google Nexus One and HTC Droid Eris all did quite well. Check out the video below to see the tests and marvel at the apparent differences between touchscreens and their performances.
As Sadat Karim writes on Neowin,
"Hope is not lost though, as Moto Labs concludes that they do expect these problems to be remedied in the future as touchscreens mature and gain further traction in the industry. Commitment and competition will ultimately deliver seamless touch experiences for all consumers over time, since phone makers are continuously perfecting their products."
To see touchscreen hardware nerds duke it out over the test, check out the Moto Labs blog. How about you, readers? Have you felt the difference in performance across some of these handsets?
