In the touchscreen pecking order, resistive panels have found themselves with a bad rap compared to their fashionable capacitive cousins. However, Fujitsu is hoping to change all that, with a range of 5.6-, 7- and 12.1-inch resistive touchscreen panels that are capable of recognizing multitouch gestures but also working with gloved fingers or passive styluses.
