That is a problem with all touch screens, I suspect: lack of physical  
sensory feedback to the fingers. This is one reason for why keyboard  
touch screens haven't caught on in the past.

I think others try to do similar products, but it is hard to match.

It is a bit pricey, especially when tied to mobile phone fees. The  
device itself now, in its basic model, is not so pricey.

The new thing is the flexibility of the device, but I think they  
mentioned a bit that the software was just new implementations of  
older things.
