So the pixel doesn't have "force touch" like an iPad it uses pointer events to respond to the amount of surface area the touch covers, is that correct? If that is the case surely any device with a capacitive touch screen would be able to respond to such input. I have tried a few devices and the only ones that I could find that responded to pointer pressure (i.e capacitive touch area) with a finger are chromebooks and a native iPad app called TC-11. Even a super cheap chromebook responded to it, does this mean that it is purely os or browser based functionality. Could pointer pressure theoretically be implemented on all modern devices with a touch screen?
