    personally the black trackball adds a very small percentage of sophistication to it

    thats just me though

    but back on topic, the trackball really doesn't need to be lit, everyone knows how to scroll
    +1 All BB addicts should know it by now

    Quite correct no LED for the trackball on the 8900. It does look a bit weird on the bold. I will be changing it around again. By the way the atomic trackball will work on all current BlackBerry's.

    I noticed that the atomic trackball is a little bit bigger than the Bold's trackball (maybe I am wrong...). Does the atomic trackball fit well on Bold? Or is it loose? Thanks so much for the pictures and information!!!!!

    the black trackball might not work
    because the curve 8900 uses a different style of detection with laser


    Hey mobiman..... I wonder if it's true that Javelin trackball uses laser detection... and are we able to swap the whole trackball part to the bold (not just the ball itself)..? Thanks a lot!!!

    well, I just don't know if mobiman swapped just the little ball (the little white tiny sphere), or the whole part of the trackball (including the sensors and mechanics etc. around the ball)

    I am sure he meant the whole mechanism. The new style sealed trackball would require that to work.

    Yeah. hopefully it's the way =) I was wondering because you know you can take only the ball out. =) The current trackball is too loose I feel.

    Oh it's sealed? I thought we could always take only the ball out. just like what they do when they are cleaning the trackball.

    I know the balls are all same size. but if the sensors and mechanics around the ball is different then the wrapping of the ball is different, and thus it might be tighter , or looser.

    i meant the whole mechanism size, considering the trackballs are all interchangeable now.. even the G1 uses the exact same trackball device...

    Oh I c... hehe. I am just a little bit worried after knowing that the trackball's mechanism is laser instead of "mechanical" as shown in the picture (with four little black rubber scrolls...)



    i thought they'd remove the white plastic and black rubber so that the whole part of the trackball and mechanism might not be interchangeable.... anyway....

    Hopefully you are right and I may be just too obsessed with the Atomic Trackball

    Just ordered Bold, am gonna rock with it in a few days=)

    The size is just alright, far smaller than I thought it would be. Omg, so sleek. Anyway I want the Javelin's trackball. The Blackberry's current trackball is just toooooooooooo loose and doesn't move quite smoothly.
