    Welcome! the trackball is what it says, a ball to navigate. the trackpad is a little area to move your finger over, similar to an optical mouse.

    Tour looks like it will be a great Blackberry Device. Nice Choice. The Bold is a nice device as well, but only on AT&T.

    That's a tough question. It's really all about your preference. The track ball is a tried and true, proven feature that most people like. The trackpad is still in it's infancy, and people have mixed emotions on it. I saw a comment from a youtube video about the navigator that said it required to much movement to use the trackpad for their taste. It did seem to take a little more movement than the trackball, but I think overall, the trackpad will last longer compared to the trackball with wear and tear. Oh, and welcome to Jurassic Park.
