I thought Samsung had already started manufacturing phones with AMOLED, like the Samsung H1 for Vodafone 360.
Or is it a new kind of AMOLED screen?

I guess if they're thinking of releasing it, it must be better than the actual ones. Let's see if Appple tries to call dibs on a legal suit against Samsung...

I'd like to try a version of touch screen where you still have a really small cursor that you can manipulate - like a cross between touch screen and trackpad. No new hardware required just a wee bit extra software and huzaa! Will help with sausage finger syndrome

Samsung has already had ultra thin phones such as the X820 on the market. Unfortunately their thinness was actually a weakness, the X820 was very fragile and often snapped where the screen met the key pad (and I should know) .

If you think the combined display-element-touch-element technology sounds a little familiar, you'd be right: Apple recently had a patent granted for improvements to touch screen devices which included a section on "Dual-Function Capacitive Elements," a system of integrating both display and sensor technology into single elements to reduce the weight and power draw of touch screen devices. How similarSamsung's latest AMOLED display is to Apple's invention - and whether the company will be taking a legal interest in sales - isn't yet known.
That patent should have been thrown back in their face, it's a logical step in to improving an already existing combination of two inventions and therefore what's called "progress". This patenting of every single little incremental improvement in anything has to be stopped, it's ridiculous.

Samsung would have surely applied for it's own patent for this specific implementation before Apple made their application, right? Would have been quite silly not to have applied for a patent once they had mapped out how it would work
