    I'm curious to see how all the naysayers whining about BlackBerry bringing back the trackpad will react when the new iphone has a trackpad. Will it be "moving backwards" again? Or will they finally see the advantage of having a trackpad to make a device truly one-handed.

    We will wait and see...

    Like the transparent iPhone 5 with holographic keyboard, right!

    Be facetious all you want. That example has no merit, it was a random concept, I don't think there were actually any patents to back it up.

    Why not, it already has the button. I think the issue some had about bb brining it back is BB10 was made for no buttons or trackpad and came out with none. Now is apple still behind because they don't have the tool belt too?

    That would make the i6 a VERY attractive device Imo

    Well I am saying exactly what I said about the trackpad on BB 20 - I probably won't use it.

    I bought BB 10 phones in spite of the fact that there is no trackpad. I will buy the iPhone 6 even with a trackpad.

    In other words, the trackpad is irrelevant to me.

    I like the track pad. I find it really annoying to select things and move the cursor on the Z10.

    Totally agree. The trackpad was a key differentiator for BlackBerry, but they didn't capitalize on it, and now apple will.

    The Trackpad was useful for the manipulation of text, which is a big part of why people buy a blackberry. I have no problem with BlackBerry bringing it back as it adds functionality. I don't see any point to the others buttons which are frankly clutter.

    A trackpad feature on a iPhone would be nice. My only concern is you have one button doing many things on the iPhone. I can see issues arising.

    I can't see a need for a trackpad on an iPhone. I don't need a button to manipulate text. I can do that by pinching the screen or long pressing it to manipulate it, but whatever works.

    doesn't BlackBerry already have a patent out for the optical trackpad and push button?
