We've been getting hands-on with the LG K910 Renoir today in Korea, and while there's a host of brilliant functions, the marketing bods came in for a grilling for one crucial component – the still-sticky touchscreen.As we've said in our Renoir review, the specs and additions to Viewty's successor are great, but could LG explain why it was still a somewhat sticky reactive touchscreen? Well no, not really. But LG did admit that work is being carried out right now to develop a handset that will use the iPhone-style touchscreen.To explain – capacative is the iPhone-style interface that responds to electric currents from fingertips rather than the sensory pad of the reactive system. This means that instead of responding immediately to electric current in the fingers, reactive has to wait (and sometimes wait) for pressure from the fingertips. If LG can marry up the impressive suite of features such as customisable real-time widgets, HSDPA, WiFi, a stonking 8MP camera complete with easy touchscreen commands and Dolby Mobile with an iPhone-esque interface, then I think that the promise of touchscreen phones could finally close to being realised.
Oh, and a 3.5mm headphone socket would be nice too.
