Synaptics introduces touchpad for mobile phones
Synaptics Incorporated has announced the MobileTouch, a new interface for mobile phones. MobileTouch translates gestures for scrolling, selection and cursor movement into on-screen navigation, resulting in an easy to use interface that improves the user experience.

The company is also known for touchpad solutions for laptops, and for the touchpad used in the recently released HP iPAQ hx4700.

The MobileTouch solution is based on Synaptics' capacitive sensing technology, which has shipped in over one hundred million of consumer devices, such as notebook PCs and MP3 players. With MobileTouch, accessing and utilizing the advanced functions of mobile phones is simple and more enjoyable.

MobileTouch is a complete solution of customizable features that include navigation, scrolling, selection, and input. Handset developers can choose to incorporate a combination of these features or just a single one, to create a custom user interface for mobile handsets. The MobileTouch is lightweight and thinner than comparable mechanical components, making them ideal for today's small, handheld devices. The MobileTouch solution offers numerous options including custom colors, sizes and shapes, illumination, and under plastic or keypad integration options, enabling a wide variety of unique designs.
