Hi Ron,

That was an interesting article thanks for sharing.

Here is something that I saw last month about a possible solution for  
the current iPhone.

Here is something that's been around for a while but doesn't seem to  
have developed much. http://www.engadget.com/2007/10/25/apple-envisions-tactility-on-touchscreen-keyboards/

Thanks
Justin
