Phone Swiping Obsolete???
It hasn't even arrived in US and it will be obsolete in Japan! If you ignore the iPhone, cell phone technology is so backward in US.

Oh please...
Honestly, how lazy does humanity have to get?
I mean, how hard is it to just SWIPE the thing?
Interesting? Yes. Thought provoking? Yes.
Useful? Not so much for me. Get a belt clip for a quick release to swipe and click it back in place.
