    From what I remember reading (feel free to correct me here), that the Onyx now uses a trackpad and not the ball, and newer OS builds won't work the the ball and thats what the model above has. So that phone could essentially be useless.

    Correct me if i'm wrong but did the same thing not happen before the 8900 came out (the trackpad talk) or was that the atomic trackball.

    Either way, there's been nothing concrete about trackpad / trackball or not so fair play to anyone taking their chances - could become a collectors item lol

    All these pre-release sales sound dodgy. Avoid
