Touchscreen Support

Feature description Keyboard only hardware Keyboard and touchscreen hardware Touchscreen only hardware
Cursor show always show if trackpad used, hide if screen touched hide always
Virtual keyboard not required, but useful for accessibility needs useful in ebook mode essential, needs to appear automatically when a text field is selected (with optional ability to expose/hide for compatibility)
Cursor hover hints/palettes accessible accessible when using trackpad accessible only if activated by 'right click' (touch & hold)
Keyboard shortcuts accessible accessible when using keyboard not available (must rely on visual icons, HW buttons, or touch gestures)
Frame accessible accessible when using keyboard & trackpad needs a touch gesture (swipe in/out from any edge) and/or new button (top left frame corner most likely), same old issues regarding discoverability of the Frame.... No physical home button on XO-3.0 hardware.
Buttons & context menu size/spacing OK nice to have them optimized to be touchable size/spacing of buttons and menus needs to be optimised for finger sized input
Screen resolution n/a n/a XO-3.0 is 1024x768, continue to make sure the Sugar shell, and activities are designed to scale well
Keyboard shortcut hints continue to add hints continue to add hints hide keyboard hints from touch only UI
Scrolling views n/a two finger drag to pan/scroll canvas two finger drag to pan/scroll canvas, essential
Home favourite activity icons need to increase icon layout size/spacing (larger targets, further apart)
