Japan's Sharp to ship touchscreen LCD with scanner capabilities

Japan's Sharp to ship touchscreen LCD with scanner capabilities

Japanese electronics maker Sharp Corp. plans to start shipping a new touchscreen liquid crystal display with scanner functions for mobile electronic devices this September, the company said Friday.
Osaka-based Sharp, known for its Aquos brand of LCD TVs, said in a statement that the new screen will be thinner and offer clearer, higher quality images than existing touchscreen displays.
The screen can respond to more than one touch at a time, allowing users to perform tasks by making tapping, pinching and squeezing motions with their figures, Sharp said.
The product's thinness comes from the use of embedded optical sensors like a scanner, it said. Documents like business cards can be scanned when placed on top of the screen.
Sharp said it plans to begin sample shipments in September, with volume production to start next spring.
