Work, discussion, theory around physical haptics on touch devices?

My team is being pushed to work out haptic solutions (heck we are motorola
and we have an amazing collection of haptic IP on the ROKR for example) for
a new product I'm working on.
After several months of iPhone use my own heuristic evaluation is that audio
is much more helpful that haptic responses. I've used various LG products as
comparison and of course the Moto products. I know that Samsung and Nokia
are investing in Immersion's vibration technology.
But again, since none of this aid in target acquisition, touch screen
sensitivity, or help with blind actions, I'm not convinced of the total
value of doing this tremendous amount of engineering work to make it
What do people think and what experiences do people have?
