Though rumors the latest iPad would contain haptic feedback technology didn't pan out, Apple (AAPL) remains interested in the concept, as a recent patent filing demonstrates. The filing covers technology that could provide feedback advanced enough to emulate a raised button or terrain map, and also discusses flexible OLED displays. Immersion (IMMR) could indirectly benefit from Apple's embrace of haptic technology.

    I think the Storm used a spring underneath the display rather than haptic feedback. What Apple is describing looks like something more advanced.
