LG phone keypad feels like skin?

LG phone keypad feels like skin?
LG announced a new mid-level phone for the Korean market. There is nothing unique in the specifications of the SH240, but it attracts attention with the silicon material, used for the keypad. It is claimed to resemble the texture of real human skin. We’ve no clue what its idea is, but the Korean ladies seem to enjoy it a lot.

For now, the “skin-phone” is scheduled only for a Korean release (at a price of about $400), but if it proves successful we may see this “technology” on the European and U.S. market in future.

Sounds like a comfortable keypad to dial/use. But makes me wonder about how the buttons will hold up after awhile and if the lettering will scrape or rub off. That's the only thing I'd be concerned about. Other than that.... it's neat.

That would be so cool if it was made with real human skin. They can use the skin of dead people, and there would be plenty of supply.
