Samsung Anycall Haptic - something for next generation of iPhones to learn from?

Samsung has introduced a new phone called “Anycall Haptic”. It features 3.2-inch touch screen, internet browser, TV reception, 2 megapixel camera and Bluetooth 2.0.


However, what sets it apart from other mobile phones, and even iPhone, is that the phone provides haptic feedback to the user input on the screen. Essentially, it means that phone simulates sounds and feel of the “clicks” like on your regular phone. There are 22 kinds of vibration in total built into the phone.

The device also features an interesting TouchWiz user interface.

It will cost between US$700 to $800 in South Korea. Samsung has not revealed when the Anycall Haptic will be available in other regions.

But it certainly would’ve been nice to have something of that sort (and knowing Apple, even better designed) in one of the upcoming generations of the iPhone.
