Last week’s invitation for Apple’s media event today included the curious wording “We have something you really have to see. And touch.” While those words have been over-analyzed in the seven days since being posted, a last-minute rumor is now speculating that the next iPad may gain the ability to feel the screen as well as touch it.
Apple haters love to trot out the fact that the iPhone and iPod touch lack a physical keyboard. And of course, the first feature iPhone users notice about any rival keyboard-equipped smartphone is usually the microscopic keys. 4iThumbs attempts to bridge that gap, offering some of the tactile feedback of a hard keyboard without giving up all the benefits of the iPhone’s virtual keys.
