I just spent some time talking with Van Potter, CEO and President of InPlay Technologies. He demonstrated for me some potentially game changing technology involving integrated pen and capacitive touch. All I can share at this time is that once their solution becomes available, and OEMs get on board, it could remove most of the traditional barriers to entry for pen-enabled notebooks and tablet pcs, and blow the pen-enabled market wide open.
Stay tuned. 2009 should be a very interesting year.
