    So... what does it do? Does it have some clever capacitive functionality or was it only a half-baked idea so far? Awesome software implementation or room for improvements?

    Please share because I'm very eager to see what people's early impressions are about what could be one of this device's biggest differentiating features!!

    it can be used as home button and if you swipe it down it shows you the notification bar, there is also an option to double touch to go back, thats it.

    So, really nothing like the trackpad of once-upon-a-time?

    Damn. Seems like a missed opportunity. Could have been great for scrolling through articles like the pkb of the KEYone. And even better for editing text as this is the real reason I am not using a full touch device. The screen is not nearly as good as the trackpad or, more currently, the capacitive pkb for moving a cursor around and doing basic text editing.

    I was really hoping to see the two worlds merge. They're probably scared to do it to avoid comparisons to the Storm.

    It can also be used with the camera app to send pictures to and retrieve them from a private locker folder.

    Will be fine with left and right swipe to switch between opened apps back and forward.
