"Track Wheel" thoughts...
Does any one think that bringing back the Track Wheel on a new device would help Blackberry at all or would it be just a novelty?
Is it necessary ?
Does any one miss it like I do?
And if your a Q10 or Bold user, would you prefer it over the touch screen?

No one would want it that wasn't an old school bb user. And plus..in bb10 there's no place for it. Or the trackpad for the matter even though I loved the trackpad

Simply put, the trackball / wheel / pad would completely contradict the flow (see what I did there) of the new ui. It would be more backwards thinking then forward. Though those items were nice but ever since the pad stopped working on my 9900 I haven't looked back.
The new UI has been built for the use of single thumb gestures and in essence the UI is your trackball.
Needless to say imagine what the blogginf world would say if BlackBerry brought it back.

A track pad on a BB 10 might not be a good idea but one thing I hate about all touch devices is inadvertently launching web pages when just trying to scroll up or down. My playbook has the ability to use a tiny portion of the bezel to move around but it would be a lot better if you could use the whole width. I also don't like my screen being all finger printed up from all the poking and stroking so therefore I really like track pads

Oh yeah I just love the track wheel
