Resistive screen phones

Does anyone know of any of the current crop of smartphones which ARE resistive rather than capacitive? My wife loves her long nails and can't use my HTC Desire at all well, but was able to use her friends Samsung Omnia (which is resistive). Would prefer to get an Android but I can't find enough details in the specs of these things to day what screens are what.



she could try a stylus?

Her Nails work well as a stylus with the resistive screen, but the idea od using one for a capacitive seems somewhat counter-intuative.

i think my SE satio is resistive

Has she tried licking the screen ? Put a cake wallpaper on it or ice cream.

They're being phased out from Android phones. The popular ones that do have a resistive screen are the T-Mobile Pulse Mini (the non-Mini is capacitive) and the HTC Tattoo.
