Peggy Anne Salz, who we mentioned last month for her piece about carriers training mobile phone users to make better use of wireless data services, has something of a followup piece. She points out that while training users might be a good step – it also makes a lot of sense to make the user interface much more intuitive. She then goes on to talk about Atrua, a company that appears to have designed a “touchpad” style interface for mobile phones that give users more control over what’s happening on the screen. While the technology is patented, it really doesn’t sound different from typical laptop touchpads – just moved to the mobile phone.
