Price and screen size are critical factors for success. Tom Kang, Senior Analyst at Strategy Analytics said, “We forecast 90 million touch screen phones to be sold worldwide in 2009, accounting for 7 percent of total volumes. We expect Nokia and Appleto ramp up shipments next year and start to drive down the price of touch screen handsets toward the mid-range.”

Neil Mawston, Director at Strategy Analytics, added, "Price is not the only factor for success. Screen size is also an important metric. Finger-operated touch screens typically work best on large displays above 3 inches in size, because this makes them more accurate and more user-friendly. For this reason, finger-based touch screens will be mostly restricted to smart phones and feature phones over the next few years and mass-market consumers should not expect to see them on entry-level devices any time soon."
