well, that mimics the feedback i would get from any keyboard. barring
the keys with the tiny raised bumps on them, there is nothing to
indicate a given key has been located. but the 'click' as the key
moves down tells me that i have pressed it hard enough to register,
and the vibration could replace this on the neo

most users will register the click/vibration quicker than the
character appearing on the screen, particularly those who look at the
keyboard rather than the screen (lots of us)

true, it can't help a key be located (whereas i can feel the edge of
real keys) before it's pressed, but it's still a step better than a
smooth kb with no feedback at all
