Thank you wsmith... I try *blushes*
Now some may not agree with having phones in which the entire front surface is a display as there is no room for buttons. I have a few solutions for this...
First let me say that the Iphone has only one button on their front surface of the phone and they sell plenty... but either way with a full display on the front even that button is missing so how to fix this:
- Have software for having buttons on the bottom of the cell phone touchscreen. Preferably with the option to hide the "menu bar". And the option to set it to hide automatically... similar to what you can do with in Windows XP, Vista, 7.. anytime you drag your finger (cursor) down to the bottom of the screen the menu (buttons) bar appears.
- Have a button on the side of the phone that you press when you want to see the menu bar come up.
- My preference would be to have a sensor on the mid to top left side of the phone. This sensor works when your phone is unlocked of course as to save battery.. but by sliding your thumb over the sensor the menu bar would pop up for as long as your thumb is over the sensor or for a preset amount of time (say 3 secs).
- Have buttons on the back or side of the phone
- Have a touchscreen display on the back that can register input and your menu buttons would be on the bottom back side of the phone. There can be small groves in the touchscreen surface on the back as to help the fingers differentiate the buttons.
- Or once again a touchscreen display on the back but rather than groves, a transparent display and being able to adjust the transparency to see the programs (menu bar) running on the back screen, but through the front screen. Again by putting/swyping your thumb over a sensor.
