What is a touch-screen?
A touch-screen (or touchscreen) It is an input device over the display that is used to simplify user input and response. The user touches the screen rather than a keyboard, keypad, or mouse to control the output.
A number of technologies are available to implement touch-screens, the most common being resistive, capacitive and surface acoustic wave (SAW) systems.
