But Apple does have over a 95% compliance rate with their non-disclosure policy.
So at least their suppliers are good at keeping a secret. Going strictly from memory that policy has the highest compliance rate of any, assuming IIRC.
Nearly all companies seem a bit too willing to overlook questionable employment policies when dealing with outside suppliers as long as the price is right IMO

One link goes to the Nexus S with capacitive screen. another goes to the white iPhone. The current LG Optimus models are also capacitive.
I can confirm this. My brother just bought an Optimus V from Virgin Mobile, and it has a capacitive screen.
It was actually much nicer than I was expecting...it is fast and responsive. Not bad for a "low end" phone at all. It has Froyo, and 512 megs of RAM and is slated to get Gingerbread too. I think it came with 8 gigs of SD storage expandable to 32 gigs.
My original post that you seem to be convinced is wrong was that resistive screens are rare, and I can't think of any recent ones
Yeah, there are almost no Android phones with Resistive screens. Android users hate them with a passion, and the manufacturers know this. I've never met a single person with an Android phone with a resistive screen...I only know they exist at all because of the internet.
