    I was right, I had a somehow defective track ball, I just got the new replacement from Tmobile and this one is so much better than my first one, now I can feel it clicking when I press it

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~The Pearls trackball is smoother and has an extra metal clip that holds it in place unlike the Curve's which just sits in place. The smoother rolling is why I swapped the trackball from my wife's Pearl to my Curve. He he.

    I have to admit, I haven't felt any difference as of yet. Maybe because I'm just so happy I upgraded to a curve. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I don't sense a difference in the trackball, plus I try not too abuse it like downloading games or apps that require heavy trackball use.

    i just switched from a 8100 to a 8320 and the trackball on the curve seems a little bit lighter...and the pearl seems a little heavier...iono if that makes sense to anyone...

    It feels quite a bit looser that the ball my Pearl had. I noticed that the second I rolled the trackball the first time using my Curve. Makes me want to buy a replacement Pearl trackball and housing to replace this one.

    The tighter trackball on the Pearl just feels and seems to be more accurate.

    Re: Curve owners... (Trackball Question)

    I definately think the curve's trackball is nicer because it is smaller which allows for better control. the scrolling on the pearl seemed too jumpy even with the sensitivity turned way down. Definately takin the 8310 on this one ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Re: Curve owners... (Trackball Question)

    the trackball on the curve might seem a less sturdier than the pearl, but they both are in fact constructed the same, i work with them everyday and i have noticed some of the curve trackballs feel more sturdy than the pearl. So it just depends on the device and how it was tested before it left the factory

    Also, if you put the 2 devices side by side, you will notice the trackball on the curve is actually smaller than on the pearl

    no you can not change the curves trackball color. only the pearl was built with colored led's under the trackball. BOOO!! but whatever I like the curves overall appearance.

    back to the subject. In the back of my mind I always told myself that the trackball feels "slushy" on my curve as opposed to my old pearl. oh well.
