It also highlights the changing role of visual designers in the overall framework of mobile user experience.

Knurling / gnurling Loosely defined as the art of adding a series of tiny ridges to the exterior surface of an object, usually with the intention of improving ease of use or purely for enhanced tactile pleasure. Pentax have been doing it to their digital cameras for years and it is prevalent throughout high-end sporting equipment. Motorola recently introduced the luxury Aura handset, featuring a number of knurled surfaces.
