Synaptics has developed a new touchpad interface solution for the HP iPAQ hx4700 Pocket PC. The NavPoint touchpad solution replaces the HP device's five-way mechanical button with an interactive capacitive sensor. In addition to replacing button functionality, the NavPoint also offers unique navigation controls, including short and long distance scrolling features, tapping, and mouse-like cursor navigation.
"The NavPoint solution offers users improved functionality and versatility in accessing and managing today's richer content in handheld devices," explains Francis Lee, President and CEO of Synaptics. "We are pleased to work closely with a company such as HP that emphasizes innovative technology in their device designs."
