Well, not to beat a dead horse, but I really think it is a good idea. What if it was a thicker static type removable film that had raised bubbles. The bubble height would be such that without depressing, your finger would be just a little too far away to trigger it. May not look as pretty, but if were easy to remove and put back on, the heavy texters might like it. I personally have sent a total of 10 text messages in my whole life, so I am no expert, but it just sounds so right.Thank you very kindly. Like I said, it's an old trick, and I'm an old dog.
After thinking about it though, I realize it's probably not very useful with a capactive touch screen, because that works from proximity, not pressure.
With mechanical buttons or resistive screens, where you can lightly lay your fingers, the physical feedback would work much better.
On iPhone, by the time you felt the ridges, you'd already be selecting something. Oh well, darn.
