    Please forgive this silly question but what makes the touch screen work, is it pressure or temp of your fingers? I am asking because the touch screens I play with don't seem to respond to my fingers as well as they do my husband's. Even with a stylist it seemed like a lot of pressure was needed.

    Thanks,

    Are you referring to the inspire? There are two types of touch screen (that I am aware of). Resistive and capacitive. "Capacitive touch screens use a layer of capacitive material to hold an electrical charge; touching the screen changes the amount of charge at a specific point of contact. In resistive screens, the pressure from your finger causes conductive and resistive layers of circuitry to touch each other, changing the circuits' resistance." The Inspire is capacitive. It requires touching with the capacitive nature of the skin. This is why styluses don't work. (Unless specially made for this purpose) Fingernails also don't work on these, nor will gloves.
