I particularly agree with this. I was working on yp r1 which also has
touchscreen (capacitive and multi touch!! Which also gives information
about gesture).....
Another idea I was thinking about is the possibility to exploit touch pads
and/or touchscreens as virtual scrollwheels :) -> this includes the concept
of gestures & co.
I think nowadays we are obliged to really accomplish many differences with
respect to older devices. It does not make sense to try having the same
feature on every kind of device (the politics has been so far this if I'm
not wrong).
Let's do some brainstorming somewhere about this (e.g. " would be cool to
scroll down the status bar to show quick menu like notifications on
android"..."...")
What do you think?
