|Synaptics Incorporated announced that its MobileTouch capacitive sensing technology has been incorporated in Pantech’s PT-S280 and PT-K2800 mobile phones. Pantech is using a 4-button MobileTouch solution on the exterior of these phones for quick accessibility and control of popular Multimedia on Demand (MOD) functions. |
The ultra-thin MobileTouch sensor replaces mechanical buttons and allows the user to easily manipulate controls. LEDs illuminate the touch sensitive buttons on the topside of the phones.
“Our capacitive sensing technology has clear advantages over traditional mechanical inputs,” said Clark Foy vice president of marketing at Synaptics. “Synaptics' MobileTouch solutions enable our customers to implement sleek and unique industrial designs for their products, while also providing intuitive, easy-to-use interfaces for end users.”
“Incorporating Synapitics’ capacitive sensing solutions into our mobile phones allows us to increase functionality, enhance the user experience, and continue to create thin stylish designs that appeal to consumers,” said Jeong Dong Min, Senior member of technical staff at Pantech.
Pantech’s PT-S280 and PT-K2800 mobile phones are available in Korea through service provider SK Telecom and KTF, respectively.
