Many users are dismayed to learn that current touchscreen tech does not work when using gloves. There are a few solutions for this problem and a whole industry has spawned for creating touchscreen capable gloves. We have covered winter gloves for BlackBerry use a few times already but I recently ran into a few more options in a NYTimes article a friend sent over. Practically all of the NYTimes touchscreen suitable gloves list were new to me so I though I would share them with you. If you see yours missing from the list and think they are better let us know in the comments! I am always looking for a better way to be able to use my BlackBerry in the cold.
Here are the gloves recommended by the NYTimes:
- Techtouch gloves starting at $20
- Echo Touch gloves for women starting at $25
- Gaspar Gloves expensive leather gloves starting at about $300 🙂
- Cheap black AG Gloves for $18
They even highlight a homemade solution by Grathio on making any glove into a touchscreen capable one. The instructions are at this link.
BTW anybody else notice that the BlackBerry Torch keyboard keys are harder to press in sub 30 degree temperatures? I don’t remember my 9700 being so hard to press…
