    I completely agree with you. However; I don't find my Classic's screen to be "oversized" because it has the tool belt. If I didn't have the trackpad, I would still have it because, like you said, the Q10 screen is too small for efficient touch operation.

    Trackpad helps tame oversized screens as well. We still have a PlayBook hdmi into a 99" panel in one conference room. 9900's trackpad thru the PlayBook makes presentations and other uses a wonderful experience. I wish my laptop had BB's optical trackpad...

    In the beginning, I didn't use it that much, coming from an iPhone 5. After a couple of days, I found myself using it more and more, especially when browsing and organizing my calendar.

    Pretty soon, a whole lot of people are going to discover what a convenience a trackpad is... on their iPhone 6s/s+... and they'll be telling you how great it is.

    I use it all the time on my Classic. It took a while to get used to because I hadn't had a trackpad since 2013, and because I'd been using Passports.

    But when I'm on my Classic, I always use the trackball.

    I try to use the the trackpad as much as possible so I don't have to touch the screen. The trackpad just makes the Classic that more efficient.

    I was using my SE until I decided to bust out the trusty 9900 which I waited in line for on launch day! Once I used the 9900, I had to have a Classic (again) becuase of that old school feel and BB10.

    Now I find myself reaching for the Classic more and using the SE at home at night and on weekends.

    I went from a Z10 to a Classic for the very reason that the Classic has a tool belt. I liked the Z10 but the Classic is much more efficient.

    When I'm using my Classic, it's second nature to use the track pad. I'm not saying that I scroll up to select something that I can easily do by just hitting the area of the screen, but I can say that I intuitively know when to use it.

    Lol... +1000 !! Three "smart guys" in my crew modded a lock app to disable touch on our 9900s. 26 of us used those 99s for over a year with that mod. Track pad is SO good that we NEVER missed the disabled touch.

    Passport makes a decent platform For viewing prints as pdf. I carry a ToughBook for field dwg work, tho.

    I actually use the trackpad quite a bit. When I first got the phone, I honestly didn't think that I would use the trackpad, or the entire toolbelt at all for that matter. But now, I actually use it quite a bit. It's especially great for text selection and moving around the cursor like a mouse.

    I find the tool belt essential compared to my wife's Q5. However...the trackpad is too small and reacts strangely, not consistent somehow. I miss my 9790 in this respect a lot...hopefully Classic 2 will improve on this..

    Damn u guys are geniuses!!!!!!!!' Send the APP PLEASEEEEEEEEE
    luisrevuelta at revuelta dot com!!!!!!!! How can RIM BE CONVINCED THAT A FRANKESTEIN 3 hump camel is not the strategy to compete with social gaming devices as Cupertino!!!!!!! Stick to the basics and keep it simple, buying a BB should be like buying a Porsche, a Bang and Olufsen, a Leica or a Patek Philippe, if they ever have the intestinal fortitude to trust the consumers that need efficient and logical devices, and forget about competing with gimmicks and social phones, they will find a bottomless market niche,,,, I hope Qwerty board and track pad cursor, do not ever go away... There is nothing more logical and natural than Tactile and visual connections to the brain......

    I use the trackpad all the time. In fact, when I switch to my Passport (like I have at the moment), I miss the trackpad tremendously. I wish there was some way to 'click' on things using the touch keyboard on the Passport.

    Honestly, I didn't think I'd need the touchpad, but now that I have the Classic, I really am dreading the day I'll have to buy a phone without it.
