See URL above for some of the best photoshop fakes I've seen ... Or are they real? Virtual touchscreen as been rumored. Is it here?

Could very well be a hoax but it's a good one.

Hoax or not ... this touchscreen design/concept (photos from URL in above post) has been much rumored. One recent source -

Calls of Note Part 5 - BMO Capital Markets notes their checks suggest that Broadcom (NASDAQ:BRCM) has obtained a noteworthy design win in the upcoming “stealth phone,” about to be offered by a major consumer device company.

No, it is not the application processor, neither the baseband, nor the wifi/Bluetooth. Firm's checks suggest that it is a system on a chip (SoC) that enables an onscreen touchpad feature that is likely going to enable a new type of user interface for the phone. They believe the SoC is a mixed signal, analog/digital device that has an ASP of somewhere in the $2-$3 range. It appears that there is a strong likelihood that this part shows up in the next generation media players as well.
