Nothing happened. They found something that sells more phones, so they added a tiny extra bit of functionality (ability to call the vibrate interrupt from within a game) and are now promoting it. Corporations exist to make money. If their market research team found out that depressed wives and horny teenages girls were using vibrating cell phones to pleasure themselves, they'd start shaping new models more like dildos.

What I want to know is, What happened to E2? Why is nonsense like this being cooled?
What's next? Eventually, Nokia will disable all abilities to dial your friends, send messages, call 911 and so forth and transform the phones into handheld gaming devices, packed with games and sell them for the same price and all humans (some won't even notice) will be totally isolated from eachother and sitting in front of their little 48x84 screens and trying to take as many boxes as possible.
