    Proximity sensor. Fades your screen to black and disables your touch screen when you bring the phone to your ear so you don't end up launching something while talking.

    Hawk is right, it is a sensor to turn the touch screen off while on a phone call. The little things that make a diffence!

    Almost thought it might be proximity sensor because it doesn't blink when I'm on loudspeaker. But this isn't working real good @ night when all lights are switched off. I still have to lock the phone from above.

    I noticed mine is always blinking, whether on a call or not! Is that a malfunction?

    Mine does the same :S it's very faint now but a while back it was really bright, brighter than the notification LED :/

    Wow didn't notice this. Have to try on a call at night but I guess I never would have noticed Most always I used the speaker or headset.
