    It works, I asked the guys in the 8520 section and it works with a piece of plastic over it.

    I like the trackball. The trackpad is ok on my laptop, but quite often I find myself disabling it, opting instead to use the ThinkPad's Trackpoint.

    I never tried a trackpoint, but my laptops have been Toshiba and HP, not IBM/Lenovo.

    I have heard people say that with the trackpad if you have a little bit of moisture on your fingers it dosent work that well?

    [QUOTE=eve6er69;3597976]With all these new devices coming out with rumored and pictured trackpad's I have to say I am not really looking forward to giving up the trusty trackball.
    Now I know people have some issues with them time after time but its a cheap DIY fix.

    I have heard rumors that the pad dosen't respond well to clammy or damp fingers etc...

    I don't know if I am the only one but I really like the look/feel of the trackball.

    I really don't understand the hype over the trackpad. It seems to do the same thing as the trackball. One thing that I have noticed about RIM is that they spend a lot of time and money making their devices better functioning but seem to rarely offer anything new. I appreciate that their phones get netter at what they already do, but why not try to offer new functionality? I would like the idea of the trackpad if it other uses besides doing exactly what the trackball and essentially the scroll wheel did.

    The trackpad = no more trackball problems. That is something very new.

    And I agree with a previous poster, the trackpad may not respond well to
    dry or damp hands. I experience the same thing sometimes with my iPhone.

    I love the trackball and don't understand why people have so much trouble with them, I think they use it with greasy and wet fingers that's why is always messing up with them, I've had 4 BBs with trackballs and have never had any issues, only reason why I replace the trackball is because it gets dirty...I've played with the trackpad and it isn't bad but the pad it self is very losse and a bit cheap IMO but I'm willing to giv it a shot, have no other choice lol

    I like the trackball just fine works good for me .I would try the trackpad if that's what the phone had but not because I dislike the trackball. Seems like the trackball gives you more moveablity since it just rolls and a trackpad you would have lost some of that but I have not used a trackpad ever so just IMO

    I would hate a trackpad. I buy IBM laptops because they are one of the makers that don't use a track pad.
