Samsung’s newest cell phone, the SCH-W559, is the company’s first handset to use Immersion’s VibeTonz technology on a touchscreen. The phone also boasts a 1.3MP camera, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, and audio/video playback. Read the description below to get more info on how the vibrating touchscreen works.
The unit’s QVGA touchscreen is meant to be a hands-on experience, and whether you use a stylus or the tips of your finger, the phone will provide a vibrating cue, which can be adjusted and customized within the phone’s software, whenever you touch a virtual button. Immersion claims that its technology allows the on-screen buttons to feel more like “mechanical keys” rather than just a sheet of plastic.
