I just don't see me ever touching the back touchpad for anything...Kinda looks Pointless to have it.

Better than leaving fingerprints on that beautiful screen.

Yep, three so far..
- Sound Shapes
- Little Deviants
- LittleBigPlanet

Sound Shapes: You can use the rear touch pad to move the shapes around and resize them.

Little Deviants: Roll the Deviant around by creating a small hill to pass a level, you can also "whack" them using both the front and rear touchscreens.

LBP: Some of the levels such as the one shown in the trailer below uses the rear touchpad too!

The trackpad acts as L2 and R2 so more controls, if you're not a fan of smudging the touchscreen or occluding the screen with your hands, and it makes the games more challenging if you have to play the game without using the touchscreen, so if you're a fan of hard mode play in games, then that's for you.

Escape Plan has an interesting way to use it. I remember at the tech demo the guy pressed on a character on screen with both the touchscreen and the touchpad in order to "squeeze" the air out of him. I thought that was pretty ingenious. Other than that, it looks like it might be interesting to play Katamari with it.
