We are going to hear a lot about Android Tablets at CES 2011. N-Trig the company that makes the high-quality capacitive digitizers that power many of the world’s leading notebooks and tablets, now teaches DuoSense to write on Android screens with Multi-Touch Technology. DuoSense technology expands developer creativity & consumer connection on slates.
DuoSense offers pressure sensitivity and sub-pixel accuracy on the pen side, and four point+ multi-touch gestures on the finger side. The feature is expected to add about $50 to the price of an Android tablet.
Utilizing N-trig hardware, devices running over Android can expand conventional slate functionality by using both the DuoSense pen and multi-touch capabilities. The combination of DuoSense and Android opens up new windows of opportunity for the Android pen community to utilize the N-trig Digital PencilTM to expand functionality from traditional media consumption and create pen-enabled applications for more precise and creative on-screen user interaction.
“With the addition of Android, we are able to address the different requirements of a rapidly growing market that is looking to expand its media consumption and creative capabilities for pen and multi-touch functionality,” says Amichai Ben David, CEO of N-trig. “Together with the Android developer community, we will be able to enable greater precision, productivity and accuracy with new pen-enabled applications that will enhance the way users connect with their computers”.
N-trig’s DuoSense solution will be integrated in a number of Android slates due to be launched in 2011.
