Phoenix let me know about a thread on PinStack by the owner of Creative Business Solutions Rob. Rob is in the late stages of development of a textured screen protector for the Storm. It will essentially add some tactile feedback based on different textures on the screen protector. For example, if you look at your computer keyboard you will probably see that the F & J keys have little nubs sticking out of them to help you find them when you are touch typing. This upcoming Storm screen protector would do something similar by letting you feel the keys that you are pressing. The only downside is that the textures will only be for the QWERTY keyboard in landscape OR portrait mode not both.
At first I did not think this was a big deal until I started reading the responses. It looks like Storm users would really appreciate such a think. I also touch type on my Bold so I can kind of see the appeal. On the other hand having to wait for the SurePress screen to reset after each click is the most annoying part of typing on the Storm.
So what do you think? Are you interested in a “Smart Cover” screen protector? If so let the designer know in the PinStack forum thread.
