How about using a phone that has a customizable keyboard and a touchscreen? This is the concept behind the Elastic Phone, created by Sung-Ching. The handset uses a flexible keypad with touch feedback and based on OLED technology. You can expand this keypad section and add more functions.

For example, you can convert the keyboard to a gaming control system, media controls and some regular keys for messaging. The keys can be moved around and they’ll finally provide the much needed feedback that’s lacking from the usual touchscreens, in spite of attempts to deliver the feeling of physical keyboards.
