    "Senseg E-Sense technology, which appears to give texture to a touchscreen"

    ah, Sorry, looked like waffle to me.

    Would really be something that would entice you to make a purchase?

    I must admit that when MIUI implemented a feature that gave on-screen button presses the "feel" of pressing a real button in terms of haptic feedback, it was quite nice. Taking it to a new level like that would be pretty cool

    Either way tomorrow will be an interesting launch event

    I just like new toys! As with every new toy I have bought, the novelty would wear of pretty quickly.

    Never mind, it could be reborn as your Electric Frisbee, a one trip wonder toy, "Watch carefully, I shall do this only - - - - - "

    Hmmmm, I wonder if the Senseg E-Sense technology comes with the "Frisbee texture"?

    yes, the Fanboys will be wetting themselves with excitement, Apple execs will be rubbing there hands together and cackling like Scrooge McDuck and the rest of us will just ignore it as always

    I do wonder how much actual *use* something like that would be though, in terms of actual benefits? There's the gimmick factor for sure, but aside from the fact that most people don't care too much about on-screen buttons not "feeling" like a physical button, what use is it? You can't skim your fingers across an on-screen keyboard to find the "F" and "J" keys, because the touch is still there, and counts as a key press...

    Still, a nifty technology nonetheless. I would much prefer to see something *useful* come out of it such as NFC.
