Samsung Announces Atmel maXTouch Sensors for Galaxy Tablet
One of the biggest issues back when Android first came out was the lack of multi-touch. Since then the problem has been resolved for the most part and developers have since been adding support for multi-touch for awhile now, especially with Android games.
The Samsung Galaxy Tablet will certainly not have that issue since Samsung just announced that the Galaxy Tablet will be coming with Atmel maXTouch sensors. These sensors can also be phone in a few of the newer Android phones such as the Incredible, EVO and of course the Galaxy S line.
What's so good about these? Well according to Atmel and Samsung they support an unlimited amount to touches while keeping responsiveness fast, accuracy high and power consumption low.
This is going to make gaming on the Galaxy Tablet a whole lot better and should help it compete with the iPad (if not surpass it). If you're really into Android gaming this is one more reason to buy one of these tablets.
"Atmel maXTouch solutions have proven to be the best architecture with the highest touch performance, fastest response time and are more precise than competing touch products," said Mr. Dongsub Kim, Principal Engineer and Team Leader at HW Platform R&D Group of Samsung Electronics Mobile Device Division. "After selecting maXTouch solutions for our smaller screen devices, we knew it would be the right choice for Samsung GALAXY Tab. Atmel maXTouch will empower GALAXY Tab users with unlimited touch capabilities and longer battery life, for an overall better experience."
