The article reports that Apple's iPhone smartphone has spurred new interest in touchscreen user interfaces on mobile phones. Analysts claim that the combination of an increasingly complex device in the smartphone category and the touchscreen's ability to make those devices easier to use are the reasons why touchscreens have caught on. ABI Research is forecasting that 100 million handsets with touchscreens will be shipped in 2008, and they include models like the iPhone such as the LG Voyager and the Samsung Ultra-Smart F700.
