Apple Granted Two Patents For Advanced Next-Generation Touchscreen Technology

According to a new report from PatentlyApple, the US Patent and Trademark Office granted and publishedtwo advanced multi-touch display patents filed by Apple in 2007.

The first patent mentions different combinations as to where the touch sensing elements can be integrated into the liquid-crystal displays (LCD) relative to both the color filter and array plates.

While it doesn’t seem like much, the patent could pave the way for more precise, sturdy and thinner future touchscreens to be used in next-generation devices. The newly granted patent, entitled “Touch screen liquid crystal display”, lists over 85 various patent claims, which could cause issues for other companies looking to advance their own techniques for manufacturing displays.

Interestingly enough, mentioned by other reports is the possibility of In-Cell touchscreen technology. While not widely known, the adoption of the next-generation “In-Cell” process allows for the integration of touch sensors directly into the display as opposed to using an additional layer for detecting touch input – similar to the method mentioned above. However, as highlighted by PatentlyApple, the complexity of the process mentioned in Apple’s patent simply doesn’t match that of In-Cell technology.

Stay tuned for more on the subject and complete coverage on Apple.

  1. I have been absent for a while, but now I remember why I used to love this website. Thanks, I’ll try and check back more often. How frequently you update your web site?

  2. You’ve made a terrific position in the following paragraphs. I merely invested time looking at your entire posts and I have to admit you are a master who always kicks out good ideas. Now you have me when your loyal viewer. Preserve publishing good posts. We are looking forward to them.

  3. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  4. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  5. The day the routers died – who put the 4 inch nail in the circuit breaker and poured coffee over the servers? A. The Bastard Operator from Hell

  6. This is a fairly sweet giraffe case! Extremely fascinated. The man-made synthetic leather is of excellent good quality and appears genuine. I placed this on my birthday celebration hope checklist and was very pleased at just how awesome it’s. It is extremely roomy – and the most significant purse I individual.

  7. I remember i had a problem with that some time ago. If i only read it earlier :)

  8. sgbc.sgindex.phpmember46411″ http:howmanycaloriesinasliceofpizza.nethow-many-calories-in-a-grapefruit , With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of unique content I��ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being ripped off? I��d truly appreciate it.

  9. You have impeccable writing skills! You make some valid points with which I agree and I think this is really great reading material. Thank you.

  10. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn��t show up. Grrrr�� well I��m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say fantastic blog!

  11. I am extremely impressed together with your writing skills and also with the structure on your blog. Is that this a paid subject or did you customize it yourself? Either way stay up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to look a great weblog like this one nowadays.

  12. When I first see the opinions I became anxious. I did already manufactured buying. My poor!!! This bag is incredible!!! It truly is large, has 2 go in type openings somewhere and also the other has 2 large zippered openings, that produce a bank account on their own.

  13. I understood we could not go daily without having hearing from you. What happened in your score? Are you starting in excess of hoping for any different outcome?

  14. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  15. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
