N-Trig might not be as well known in the touchscreen tablet field as Wacom, but recently they've been pushed to the fore after their capacitive panels found their way into Dell's Latitude XT
and HP's Touchsmart tx2
. Those Tablet PC's are just the beginning, though; according to
Lenny Engelhardt, VP of business development at N-Trig, we can expect to see traditional notebooks with multitouch-capable displays next year, together with new gesture support. That will include "multitouch buttons", an on-screen palette of app-specific tools intended for fingertip use.
