What is Haptic technology?

By using this technology the user can sense the touch, that is when we touch the touch screen we will get feedback from the touch screen either as a vibration or motion. The word “haptic” derived from Greek word “Haphe” which means sense of touch. When we hit a key in the touch screen we will get a feedback in your finger that key is working.

It has 3.2 Mp camera that uses professional Carl Zeiss optics and is good enough to shoot professional video clips for Web use a web browser that supports the Flash format used by most Internet pages to display video.

This device will be available here in India by the end of year 2008 for a cost around 20K. I guess its competent price with the features available.
