    After 5 days using the new BB, I hardly use my trackpad anymore. I only use it for copy paste generally now. Quick poll as i'm interested to hear your thoughts

    Lol, well...if god made my fingers small enough to hit stuff like the 'tabs' button on the bb browser, or teeny tiny links without zooming --- I've got to use the trackpad. But power to ya if you can! Maybe I can get botox in my fingertips shaped like a point?

    Coming from an all touch device (HTC Incredible), I still find myself using the trackpad 75% of the time. Easier reach for my thumbs maybe?

    You should enable browser shortcuts and press "W" to quickly switch to the tabs screen.

    As for the trackpad, it's my primary method of navigating the phone.

    I'm still using the trackpad for selecting small links on web pages but mostly have migrated to the touchscreen after using the 9800.

    I use the touchscreen to scroll quite a bit and to select icons off my home screen. Far as clicking links in the web browser I always use the trackpad. Screen isn't big enough to click links with unless I zoom in. Trackpad is way faster for that sort of stuff.

    I am usung trackapad always when screen is not responding (it happens - there is a thread about it) or if it's just easier to press is instead of moving finger througs some options at display.
    Mixture of trackpad and touch screen gives me what I need. All best from both worlds

    I can't live without my trackpad. It makes virtually every aspect of managing text such as positioning the cursor and selecting text, which is horribly cumbersome on any touch screen, intuitive and natural.

    Without that trackpad, I'd have tossed my torch in the bin after the first day.

    using both at this time. when I have need for a long scroll trackpad is quicker.

    Use both depending on what I'm doing. Using the trackpad I keep a full view of the screen and the screen stays clean.

    No problem. Keyboard shortcuts and the track pad are reasons why I think the browsing experience on a BlackBerry (especially on OS7) is the best, even if it might be a second or two slower at loading pages than the competition.

    Barely at all unless there is a small onscreen control in the browser.

    But one thing I highly prefer the trackpad for is selecting text. No contest there between TP vs. Touchscreen.
