Touch screen device

I was wondering whether and old Pocket PC would make a good input device. Obviously it would require code for the UI to be written on the device with the .NET compact framework and some USB interface work between that and the Netduino. I've got an old iPaq 5450 gathering dust in the attic somewhere. Maybe I'll dig it out.

Hey, I am just starting out with hardware programming and was wondering if someone knows of a touch screen device that I can interface with a Netduino board. I was doing some research and I found this: http://emartee.com/p...uino-Compatible)
Wow, that's a pretty awesome price.
Looking at the interface and code very briefly... It looks like it would probably work; my only concern would be the speed of bit-banging those pins in managed code. You might need to create a native C++ driver...
Also, I didn't see any code samples for how to read the touch input. Does that module actually pass the touch input to your code?
We haven't tested the unit, so we can't vouch for whether it works or not--but for that price it would be a cool experiment if nothing else.
