Samsung presented the new SCH-W559 phone which has no numeric keypad. Instead you enter everything on the touchscreen, just like on the iPhone.
One of the nice features of this ShakyPhone from Samsung is that the touchscreen provides tactile feedback:
Samsung is already acquainted with Immersion's VibeTonz—whose shaky vibrations (introduced a year ago) already accompany ringtones and a games in its more-conventional SCH-a870 clamshell rolled out last summer. But the idea to incorporate touch feedback for entries on a touchscreen is a new way to use the shaky stuff.
The only serious disadvantage is probably the power consumption of this feature.
Price and availability of the SCH-W559 are unknown.
