...Or am I completely missing the point?

Missing the point. The point is to reconfigure the screen on the fly. Imagine if your touch phone could pop up a physical 10 digit numerical keypad when in call mode, then a 30 button qwerty keyboard when in text/email mode, then play/pause/stop/next track buttons when in music mode, etc. One screen, many possible interfaces depending on application, but with tactile feedback.
