According to a recent research by ABI Research in 2016 97% of the smartphones are going to use touchscreens (so that’s a no on the holographic screens in the next 5 years). The agency claims touchscreens are the main reason smartphones and 3G services became so popular in the last few years. In 2007, before the first iPhone was released only 7% of the smartphones used touchscreens and the number has been growing ever since – it was 75% for 2010.
We should also point out that back in 2007 most of the touchscreens used in smartphones were resistive and now they’re capacitive. This means today’s screens support multi-touch and don’t require pressing,but rather just a touch. B.A.
