Samsung's Braille Cellphone Wins Gold Award At IDEA

Designed for visually impaired phone users, the 12 button handset acts as two braille keypads to enter in text for text messaging to other cellphones. Incoming messages are displayed using braille on the bottom half of the phone.

Samsung only has this as a prototype for now, but if they want to commercialize it, the seriously under-served market would be most grateful.
