Getac UK has announced that its line of Tablet PCs is set to offer a multi-touch screen for use with or without gloves.

Having multi-touch technology on the V100 Tablet PC will allow users to move and edit documents, rotate maps and photos, zoom in and out of the maintenance manuals and navigate numerous system applications by using a series of ‘gestures’ with their fingers.

The multi-touch technology uses a series of single-touch, dual-touch, ‘flick’ and application gestures.

Users of the company’s V100 Tablet PC will now be able to quickly perform on-screen tasks, such as move, copy, delete, zoom and rotate, by touching the screen and performing the task desired with their fingers.

Getac’s resistive multi-touch technology is not based on capacitance sensitivity, which means that users can perform these actions and many others while wearing protective gloves.

This makes it suitable for industrial and field professionals who work with dangerous chemicals or who perform their job in extreme weather conditions.

Even with gloves, the sensitivity and accuracy of the multi-touch screen is high, according to the company.

The screen features 2,048 x 2,048 resolution, a 100-points-per-second report rate and a less-than-35ms response time.

Getac’s multi-touch technology will also offer complete compatibility with Microsoft’s Windows 7 when it is launched later in October.
