What are the chances of haptic feedback on the new iPhone?

    More info on Haptic Technology here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haptic_technology

    It looks really interesting - a concept where we get touch feedback through the screen depending on what's displayed.

    What do you think the chances are of some kind of implementation of this in the new iPhone? I mean, it's been mentioned before, but I can't seem to find much reference as to how far along the technology is for consumer devices? :apple:

    Absolutely,positively, ZERO chance. And just about a zero chance next year.

    I don't think so, but Senseg's technology - which seems to offer the best tactile/haptic feedback technology - is the easiest to implement, because it doesn't require an entire re-construction of the touchscreen. Theoretically, they could still add Senseg's technology until a few weeks, maybe days, before the production starts.

    Senseg did indicate in Q1/Q2, however, that they were talking with Apple. Also, they expected (said) the first products with Senseg tactile feedback to be available this holiday season.

    I consider it extremely unlikely, but it is definitely possible.
