From ArsTechnica:

The most common form of force feedback in our electronic devices is the sort of rumbling buzz you get when a motor spins some sort of mass inside the case of your hardware. Video game controllers usually have two motors, one on each side of the controller, and that sort of "rumble in stereo" configuration allows for a number of effects based on the speed of each motor. This takes power, it takes space, and there's not much you can do with the technology.

From Gizmag:

Ever since the Nintendo 3DS proved that you don't need bulky glasses to view images in 3D, smartphone and tablet makers have been systematically releasing their own glasses-free 3D devices with varying results. None of these, however, have incorporated the experience with console-like controls to play casual apps or streamed video games.

We did our homework well and this was the way to go as the same deal that cost us €400 on the internet would cost €530 if we bought it from the store. Our readers from Austria should probably read this as we managed to get our mitts on Xperia Neo and Orange phone number with free internet access.
