    Hi :)

    Many high-priced tablet computers let you handwrite. Such computers incorporate features of both resistive and capacitive touch screen technologies. It is almost impossible to handwrite or draw on bare capacitive screen. What is such a screen called which lets you scribble etc.? Please let me know. Thank you.

    Regards

    I think the analog version of what your talking about was called the "Etch-a-Sketch"

    The iPad has an "Etch-a-Sketch"app for that.

    I've done scribblers for resistive graphic LCDs (to check the touch cal).

    They sell a special stylus for Cap touch screens. Check out the HTC Flyer. Thats the first HTC that has one I have found. It just needs needs to be a stylus that has a tip like an eraser. Res. touch screens need that tiny contact point, where the cap screens need the large marker type stylus.
