Synaptics ClearPad 3000

Synaptics today vowed to bring itself back to prominence in touchscreens with the unveiling of the ClearPad 3000. The capacitive sensor layer is one of the first its size to support many sources at once and can recognize a full 10 fingers for pinches, rotation or other commands. It also works with touchscreens up to 8 inches across and is precise to within 1mm (0.04in), allowing genuinely accurate input. Going almost entirely without a border or thickness of its own, it's likewise seen as subtle enough to match OLEDs and other very thin displays.

The company plans to have samples of the new ClearPad available for device makers in November. It hasn't named customers but adds that a budget counterpart known as the ClearPad 1000 is launching that supports single-touch gestures like flicks as well as limited two-finger commands.
