    I just recieved ny G1 trackball today and to my surprise it feels slippery. The ball doesnt have very much grip. I've heard the 8900 trackball on the other hand has a "rough" texture allowing for grip. Has anyone else noticed this issue? Should I stick with the G1 trackball or go to the 8900 one?

    have you put it in the phone yet? when I first got the g1 trackball and trying to scroll it with just the trackball part in hand, it felt the same way. but when in the device it is much much nicer.

    Havent installed it yet I hesitated since it had that feel to it. I think I just might try it though. My white trackball is due for a replacement.

    My g1 trackball is very slippery and doesn't even like scrolling up. My 8900 trackball is flawless and that is the one I put in my Bold.

    Decisions Decisions lol. I guess either way I cant go wrong since the retainer ring covers the white on the 8900 ball.

    I also bought a 8900 trackball when I bought the g1 ball. does the 8900 ball have a silver trim or white? i really don't think it is an oem 8900 ball. I bought it from CNN.cn

    I want to say its a silver trim but I've seen pics where it looks almost like a white. Having both what made you decide on the G1 trackball instead?

    I have an 8900 as well so I just took the ball out of that and put it in my Bold. It has a white trim but that's not visible because of the silver retainer ring. I'm not sure of the quality of the oem balls from cnn or the like but my g1 ball from cnn wasn't worth the trouble. It didn't even scroll up.

    I have a G1 and can't fault it. Feels slippery when not installed but once it's in it has a nice texture to it. Man up and install it!

    Yeah I've been using the G1 trackball for a couple of months. No complaints about it. It feels much better than the original white one
