    Newest Onyx hardware - Trackball, not trackpad

    Newest hardware has the trackball again. Not the trackpad. FYI

    I'd go with the trackpad if I can choose, why they took the trackball instead of the trackpad??? Any idea?

    Interesting, thanks Radio. I wonder RIM decided to do that. Perhaps it because their customers are familiar with the trackball and changing to track might make people think twice about purchasing this?

    I definitely am E and would love to see a trackpad. You have no idea how many trackballs I have gone through. But the typical biz user may not like change and that is their major market.

    Maybe they'll change it back after the Gemini is released. Which is going to be out very very soon.

    What I heard for the Gemini is august 9th on tmobile USA, I think is true.





    Well, Josh let's call RIM and ask them if we, BBOS users can have trackpad phones,
