    I can't believe I am answering this question...but anyway.

    The iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad all use a capacitive touch sensing system. Look it up. :confused:

    Well then no. For whatever reason resistive and capacitive touch sensors are not often referred to as digitizers. Wacom's pen system, which from memory is an "active" system using a form of field effect sensing involving resonance, on the other hand is.
