    Just curious which you use more...your trackpad or your touchscreen. I'm coming from a Storm 2 so I'm pretty good at using both. I'm trying to set this up as a poll...but not sure if I can get it working.

    Poll options:

    1) 100% trackpad / 0% touchscreen (this thing has a touchscreen!?!?!?)
    2) 75% trackpad / 25% touchscreen
    3) 50% / 50%
    4) 25% trackpad / 75% touchscreen
    5) 0% trackpad / 100% touchscreen (what is that little square under the screen for?!?!?!)

    I use the touchscreen for almost everything. I use the trackpad for scrolling in the web browser, and in SocialScope, because it's easier to control, and for fine cursor movement to click small buttons or links. I fell very easily into the habit of tapping the screen to click almost everything else, though, and I came from the 9700. I voted 25% pad, 75% screen.

    It's mainly touchscreen except for those hard-to-get things that might involve my finger pressing the unintended item.

    I actually am enjoying the touch screen on my 9900 very much and sometimes whenever I touch my girls 9780 I tap her screen and then I look around like umm, hope no one saw that lol

    I find my self using both. Somethings are better using the touch screen. But also I can access things faster using touch vs track pad.

    Depends on what I need to do. Then I decide what I use. But it's a win win having both.

    4 for me. I used to use the trackpad more but now it's mostly touchscreen. I would even go 90% touchscreen 10% trackpad.

    I used to use the touchscreen a lot, but I recently took a trip to europe, and since my 9930 is on prepaid, I had to use my 9700 for two weeks. Now I find my self not even realizing the device has a touch screen :P

    I voted #4 but I'd say I use the touchscreen 95% of the time. Sometimes you have to use the trackpad though....

    I voted #1, although I'm actually about 95% trackpad, 5% touchscreen.

    So much of my usage is one handed, for which the trackpad and keyboard are much more suitable.

    Looking at the survey results, maybe I should try the touchscreen a little more. Generally I use it only for poorly designed apps where there is no trackpad input alternative.

    If I ever started using the touchscreen a lot, then I'd be disappointed I didn't buy the full screen version without the keypad. lots more real estate for using and viewing the screen.

    I'm all trackpad unless the touchscreen is required...but that's very rare. I mostly just use the touchscreen to zoom in to pictures and web pages.

    I hope not, I voted #3, even when I'm using the 9810 I need the trackpad, otherwise, I open other links inadvertently.

    When you learn to use the combination of the two properly you can get things done so fast it's unreal...why anyone would neglect any part of the device is beyond me.
