Scent enabled Cell Phones

So Samsung has just received another patent for a scented cell phone. This will be their third patent, but this one is a bit different than the two previous ones. This phone is planned to have a refilling station when the phone is connected to a dock to recharge. This will recharge the scented sponge in the phone with aromas, but what kinds of scents will be released with this type of phone?

Will this be something like a caller ID? When someone calls you, your phone will let out fragrances that remind you of who is calling? If so would you want your phone to start releasing different scents every time you received a call? Or would this be more of an annoyance? Not everyone enjoys even having a ringtone these days, and most people keep their phones on vibrate. Some things to think about would be the intensity of the smell, as well as the duration. Then again maybe Samsung has other ideas on what to use their scent technology for. If you have your own ideas, please feel free to share them with us.
