Re: Does anyone still use the trackpad?
I find the OS is still designed to run with the trackpad.. I find myself using it without thinking about it... However... My parents bought blackberries without touch screens.. I am constantly helping them with them and I find without thinking about it, I'm trying to touch the screen, however they don't have that feature.. So I would say I'm a hybrid user of the touch / track pad

The only thing I use touch for is to zoom. Everything else is track pad and keyboard. But that is why. I bought the 9930. If it didn't have them I would have purchased something else.I hope this helps.

Apparently, Rim will yield to the FORM (visual style) over Function. You can always get a straight pin (think sewing pins) and use that as a stylus to tap small links on webpages!
As I've said above, unless they greatly improve the method for moving the cursor around than is found on the current pb, the absence of a trackpad will make the device harder to use. Small screen and tiny blue arrows - oh, yeah, that will be terrific. Sometimes when trying to edit stuff on the pb, I feel like I'm playing Pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey. Tap here, no there, not there, somewhere else. Or swinging at a Pińata. Both games are done blindfolded.
I guess the device will not allow us to accidentally enter typos so that there will be no reason to edit text. No one will hesitate and realize that they need to add some additional text into already existing text where cursor placement will be needed. Sometimes I can't tell if technology moves forward or backward.

I love the trackpad. To me...a blackberry isn't quite a blackberry without one. The 9900 is the perfect balance between the trackpad, touchscreen, and keyboard. I scroll on webpages with the trackpad and I pinch to zoom with the touchscreen. They work seamless together. The saying goes if it aint broke don't fix it. Even when I use my playbook there are small links and exits "(x)" that are hard to press with my finger and that's when my good ole trackpad on my 9900 comes into play when I use the remote control feature. I'm gonna wait and see what blackberry has up their sleeve cause its gonna tough for me to adjust to a phone without a trackpad. When I play with other people's iphones and Galaxy phones shortly after I give them back cause I am just hooked on using my blackberry and it has a lot to do with the trackpad.

I need the trackpad for the same reason I need a real keyboard: For precision. I can't type on a screen and I can't select/move-the-cursor well with my fingers. Scrolling and launching apps I can do with the touchscreen, but for moving the cursor I need the trackpad.30/M/PA

I use the trackpad for about 90% of things. I will be lost without one. And as F2 mentioned, how the heck are we supposed to edit text without one? I can't tap the screen well with my long nails. I need a tp.I'll Always Be Ramblin' in Rehab: Where the real Bold addicts are!
