Sonim Licenses NeoNode's Touch Tech
Sonim and NeoNode today announced that Sonim has licensed the optical touch screen technology developed by NeoNode for use in future phones. Sonim makes rugged handsets, but has shied away from touch screen devices. NeoNode's zForce optical touch screen technology differs from resistive and capacitive screens and Sonim believes it is the best option for it to use in order to design touch-based phones. NeoNode used to sell its own touch-based phones, but filed for bankruptcy in 2008. The company now licenses its patented technology. Terms of the licensing agreement were not disclosed.
