But if peek and flow can't be used with the trackpad and the screen can't be used with gloves, then I do worry about the usability of the phone. I'm thinking more and more I'll try to find a Torch 9810 to replace my 9800. Unfortunatley Bell doesn't sell them anymore and RIM doesn't sell them direct.

I think you'll all get used to using the device without the addition of a trackpad. Five years ago, I'm sure the majority of people thought it was ridiculous to have a touch screen phone without a physical keyboard, look how that turned out.....

Now that I've experienced the difference, I have no intention of buying a BB10 phone without a trackpad. I'll get a Bold 9900 on clearance, hopefully. Would have ben a Torch 9810 but Bell in their infinite wisdom decided to discontinue them. Idiots.

Seriously though, we get it! There are some things the trackpad was great for! Mostly anyone who's ever used a BlackBerry knows that. However, it's also been known for quite some time that the trackpad will probably not be making a return to BB10, so it's time you either face the reality of what the new platform is all about (i.e. a gesture-based user interface without any buttons on the front), or try any one of these solutions:
- Buy a 9810 off Craigslist (they're cheap nowadays)
- Buy a capacitive stylus, Samsung Note, or Nokia 920
- Buy an old Windows phone with a resistive touchscreen
- Buy capacitive gloves that don't suck

The two main reasons i love my torch are the physical keyboard and the trackpad. I understand that the software has been designed without the trackpad in mind but for those of us that hate getting greasy fingers all over the screen the trackpad is a must. For the first time in i don't know how many years, i will be looking at the alternatives to Blackberry.
