tactile keyboard for iPad?!

I bought an iPad and like it a lot, apart from the smudges. However there is (at least) one thing I noticed which is weird: The on-screen keyboard has some decoration on the letter f and j. On a normal ‘real’ keyboard these little bumps are there to position your fingers, especially when typing blindly.

But the iPad keyboard is completely flat. So why did they put in these little stripes? I totally don’t get it. Is it overcompensating usability? Or just some form of eye-candy?

Just look at this picture, to see for yourself!
