Nokia has added a new feature to their new smartphones that enables touch with gloves on. The feature is called "Super Sensitive Touch" and is based on Synaptics technology.

Previously, people were unable to use their smartphone touchscreens with gloved fingers or long fingernails, requiring them to remove their gloves, or awkwardly position their fingers with long nails in order to operate their phones. For the first time ever, ClearPad Series 3 technology instantly optimizes the touch experience by automatically detecting the presence of skin, gloved fingers, or fingernails, giving users a seamless multi-touch experience regardless of input methods.

"With Synaptics' continuous innovation on touch, we are able to pioneer new technologies that improve the smartphone user experience," said Kevin Shields, senior vice president, Smart Devices, Nokia. "Nokia has been a leader in display technology, and we are setting a new standard with Super Sensitive Touch technology on the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820."

You can see a video of the Synaptics ClearPad 3250 capacitive touchscreen being demoed to Engadget below.
