Does the surface have inertial scrolling and rubber banding? I can't imagine these tiles usable at all without inertial scrolling. And if it does have it, then it is not just a "black rectangle" anymore.
Same for me. I usually have to blow the connector to make it more responsive. Although it is a feature that makes iPhone distinct, I believe it is time for Apple to let it go. I takes a huge space otherwise would have been taken by the screen and being a mechanical part it breaks often.
Very interesting numbers: 2011: Samsung: 12M units and $4B revenue Apple: 32M units and $20B revenue First half of 2012: Samsung: 4.5M units and $1.5B revenue Apple: 19M units and $12B revenue Means Apples has been outselling Samsung in the US: by 2.7x in units and by 5x in revenue in 2011. by 4x in units and by 8x in revenue in 2012. Ouch!
