Synaptics is probably best known for making laptop touchpads. But the company also makes touchscreen displays, and Synaptics is bringing its touchy feely expertise to the display market, with the introduction of the new ClearPad 7200 capacitive touchscreen display line.

These touch panels are designed for devices with screens up to 10.1 inches, and they’re pretty clearly aimed at the touchscreen tablet space, although the press release also mentions digital photo frames, home controllers, and touch capable netbooks.

The multitouch screens can handle up to 10 inputs at a time, and feature support for many fo the same gestures you can use on Synaptics touchpads including pinch-to-zoom and chiral rotation.

Synaptics says the displays will work with Windows 7, Google Android, and other Linux-based operating systems. The touch panels shoul dbe available alter this year.
