Immersion has announced a long-term partnership with Finnish mobile phone giant, Nokia. We’ll soon see VibeTonz tactile feedback systems (sort of like force feedback) on future Nokia devices. As the world’s largest mobile device manufacturer, Nokia, is in a favorable position to bring all sorts of cool features to mobile games, music playback and the whole mobile device experience. I’m excited to see what devices will be coming in the future and you should be too.
