Toshiba’s in-cell integrated 7-inch capacitive LCD ditches touch layer, extra girth (video)

Samsung’s Super AMOLED may have beat Toshiba to the in-cell capacitive touch punch, but we’re still happy to see other LCD panels dropping unnecessary layers. Featured in a GPS mock-up, Toshiba’s 7-inch 1024 x 600 R&D display touts 10-point multi-touch over 38,400 sensors — that’s one touch sensor for every four pixels. It may not be the first LCD to abandon the standard touch layer for integrated capacitive support, but we wouldn’t shy away from a tablet or embedded screen featuring this 1mm wonder. We’ll have to wait though; Toshiba’s in-cell tech is still in R&D, with no word when or if we might see it in commercial devices.
