Samsung Haptic 2 Touchscreen Phones Unveiled

With the promise of more responsiveness.

One of the well known – and most frustratingly avoidable – advantages of the iPhone is its highly responsive capacitive touch system so could this finally be eliminated by Haptic 2…

We certainly hope so because – while details are thin – Samsung’s first Haptic 2 handsets (and ‘The World’s’, naturally) look highly promising on paper, even if they do always!.

The 4GB ‘SCH-W550’ and 16GB ‘SCH-W555’ will sport 3.2in Haptic 2 touchscreens with increased sensitivity and lifelike feedback, an upgraded finger friendly UI, DMB for mobile TV and five megapixel cameras. Other niceties include customisable vibration modes (which can only lead to no good), bespoke icons and screen designs, an e-dictionary and Bluetooth (surely with A2DP).

The W550 and W555 (which really sound like Sony Ericsson model names) will retail for $480 and $550 and will launching before the end of the month. While undefined, presumably these releases will be initially in Korea – note the ‘Anycall’ branding – but if we screw our eyes shut and wish very, very hard…
