Windows Mobile 6.5 will support iPhone-like touch-screens

Remember that leaked Toshiba roadmap? Well, turns out one of their new devices flagged for release this year will not only run the sort-of-updated Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system, but it will feature a capacitive touch-screen, just like the iPhone's, responding feather touches, not presses.

 

According to MSMobiles.com, the K01 is a slider with 4.1-inch touch-screen, three-meg snapper and yes, will be one of the first Windows handsets to go capacitive.

 

Before all the Apple-lytes get up in arms over the iPhone-esqueness of all this, be warned that it won't mean WinMo 6.5 supports multi-touch. But it does mean we'll finally be seeing much more responsive touch-screens.

 

Best touch-screens of all time? Here's who we think the contenders are.
