And yet, resistive touch screens essentially require the use of both hands, unless you've mastered a very particular claw grip, or if you aren't using a stylus, but then any resemblance of accuracy is a distant dream (there's a reason the resistive touch interfaces in banks and such have enormous buttons). The postman had me sign a delivery receipt for a package once on a resistive touch screen, with my finger! I managed to draw two short and unconnected lines before I gave up.

Both screen types have pros and cons, but I do think capacitive screens are better suited towards mobile phones and mobile devices in general. The lack of required precision (except on Android with its microscopic buttons everywhere) is very useful if you aren't sitting completely still in a calm environment.
