Tour Trackball debate put to bed!
OK so every Tour owners know that there has been a debate going on regarding the trackball on the 9630. Some are saying software and some are saying hardware. Well I just received a memo from a source I have regarding this very issue. I of course can't post the whole memo but I have copied the section that I think will end this debate for good.
Below is the copied section of the memo :)
"Reports of the trackball intermittently not responding or functioning properly. RIM has determined a limited number of devices were not assembled properly causing an intermittent issue where the trackball might not function properly. New inventory is being received from RIM that is confirmed not to be impacted by this issue. This stock will be indentified with a Green dot on the cartons. Blackberry Tours with camera (BB9630TR) will start to ship by 8/21. Blackberry Tours without camera (BB9630TRNC) will start to ship the week of 8/24. The Green dot will be phased out after new stock is cycled. Screened Certified Like-New Replacement stock will be available for shipments via Direct Fufillment on 8/19."
