    Bold Trackball Quality?

    Advertisement



    I'm asking Bold owners to look very closely at the trackball to see if it's new & improved as compared to the original trackball.
    In my opinion that's one area that could be improved for smoother & more accurate operation. It would also be nice if it was a bit larger.

    Thanks for your reports!

    everybody is reporting that their bold trackball is sunken in compared to the curve but weirdly enough mine feels exactly like the curve's (i even compared mine to my gf's curve).

    Bold is my first BB device so I can't compare it but what I can say about the trackball is:

    - should have been a bit bigger.
    - less creaky.
    - more responsive.

    The placement's definitely different than the curve. There really wasn't a space left around the trackball. S58Player, it shouldn't be losing sensitivity.

    You don't have that "raised" feeling like the Curve. But it works fine.

    True, it's just different. Much like the keyboard is different than the curve's.
    It's similar to the 88xx keyboard, but they've made some subtle differences that make it much more usable than the 88xx keyboard.

    Hehe....it's not sunken in on the bold - it's flush with the face of the device. On the curve, it's really sunken, but you have space between the ball and the action keys on either side.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Idk if its just my particular unit, but I have an 8100 that I got not long after it came out, and the trackball seems so much better than any other blackberry I have used. Anyone know if they have reduced the quality since it was first implemented in the original pearl?
