Nokia has solved a common problem that plagues smartphone users during the cold winter months– having to take off gloves or mittens to send a text, tweet, or email with a touchscreen phone. With the addition of Synaptics‘ ‘Super Sensitive Touch’ technology to its new line of Windows Phone 8 devices, users are able to use the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 without having to take their gloves off, perfect for the colder months to come.

The touchscreens are not only glove-friendly, but they also respond to long fingernails. The ClearPad Series 3 sensor technology can recognize input without direct skin contact. The technology can switch between three distinct touch profiles when necessary: glove, skin, and fingernail, to avoid accidents such as pocket dialing.
