HTC Tattoo has resistive touchscreen, a few regrets

We suppose it was inevitable. In the effort to take Android to the mainstream (i.e., cheap) with the HTC Tattoo, HTC had to commit that most controversial of technological sins: fronting a touchscreen-only device with a resistive sensor. Granted, Android is more prepared for pairing a resistive screen with your stubby fingers than something like the stylus-oriented Windows Mobile, but it's still not going to be a joy for implementing the OS's few gestures or the imperfect touchscreen keyboard. As we're sure you'll all agree.

    Yeah, a lot of people seemed to initially love the idea of the Tattoo until the resistive touchscreen got mentioned. I guess though, it's probably a pretty good entry level phone. We'll have to wait and see how it's priced when it's released.
