Samsung’s upcoming SCH-W559 is the company’s first handset to use Immersion’s VibeTonz technology on a touchscreen. Other features include a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, and audio/video playback. Here’s 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
