    So in the pictures provided, on the review done here on CB, it looks as though there's a light around the trackpad, which I'm not quite sure I like or not... will reserve judgements on that for when I have it in my hands.

    Anyway, I'm curious if that's going to be a second LED notification or just something to light the pad, which is completely unnecessary because the backlight to the keypad has always been enough on previous models, however I'm guessing they're going for something similar to the old lit-up trackballs.

    I'd really like it if it were a secondary notification LED, alternating flashes with the standard atop the device on right corner. Actually, I originally thought the mark at the top right was going to be a forward facing camera, and the track light was the new notification LED position... I was really liking the idea of that...!!!

    Certainly you can make it one.

    As some guy made the trackball on the original curve "disco light". You can find videos on youtube.
