While I'd like a capacitive touch screen for GTA03, I'm pretty sure
that Openmoko has already made up its mind for one of the solutions and
I don't think we can change it here. I'm fine with that.

There are other features which other people will value more. For me,
scratch-resistance is important for example - which is easier to get
with capacitive touch screens.
