Do not know how to pull more data from the screen right now

Confirmed 5 point tracking
Touchpoints are pressure sensitive as well

This is something i've not said too much about, there seems to be an assumption on many of these tablet forums that just adding a capacitive screen is magically going to convert the pad into an apple product.

Unless the kernel & application is specifically written to handle the input from a capacitive screen, then I'm afraid its going to be just like a resistive screen but a bit more sensitive, indeed it may even confuse some applications depending on how the extra information is presented to the app. , giving the appearance of the same issues as the screen wobble on the initial shitments(sic) of the  iMX51 APad.
