Will the iPhone have this? One of the big knocks vis a vis "Smart" phones and PDAs that have keyboards is that you won't be able to type well with the flat, LCD touch screen on the iPhone because of no tactile feedback. If the iPhone incorporated this tech, and it's here already, seems to me one of the big knocks against it would be knocked out.
