Apple solves smaller bezel problem with … software?

Advanced software helps iPad mini ignore unintended touches near bezel
[Via AppleInsider]

When Apple announced the iPad mini on Tuesday, it made special note of the thin bezel surrounding the device’s 7.9-inch screen, a design feature that caused some concern as it may welcome inadvertent touch events during one-handed use.


Lots of people discussing the new mini claimed that the thin bezel would cause problems, with the inability to tell if the thumb was holding the iPad or using it.

Looks like the Apple guys thought of that and came up with a way to prevent it. Seems to me that Apple has some way of telling if the thumb is active or passive. Probably have a patent coming out on it.

And that is a difference as most people acted like Apple was like other companies and simply make the user figure out how to use it.
