This white paper presents a review of numerous independent research studies that show that tactile feedback (haptics) can be used to:

• Provide a new way to interact with phones and network services that can be as powerful and useful as the sense of touch itself

• Improve user performance (speed and accuracy) and reduce complication and stress

• Increase user satisfaction, because people prefer tactile feedback in their mobile phone interactions

• Enhance the subscriber experience by making phones more intuitive and usable and services more satisfying and sticky

Reducing the complexities of product lifecycle management is a key challenge for operators who are looking to be more innovative in the way they combine underlying network and service capabilities, in order to provide blended, tailored packages which are in tune with customer preferences.
