    Good find Ranx, much thanks...

    This is finally out so I can talk... Lol. I actually pulled apart the Javelin with a friend who had a full post-production, unbranded Javelin. We had a problem with the track ball not scrolling left without applying pressure; so we pulled out a Tx7 (yup up from a Tx5) and went to town.

    I didn't handle the screwdriver mainly cause I don't want to be responsible for screwing it up but I did follow the process quite closely and it came apart quite easily. *(Note that there ARE two screws at the bottom and the bottom plate pulls off when the top back piece is off.)*

    Once it was all apart the track ball is fully exchangeable with the 83xx, 88xx, 9000 series.

    In fact, we swapped it out and I'm now rocking a black trackball on my bold!

    As for build quality, I would have to say it's one of the best BlackBerry devices to date. I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on this thing.

    PM me
    Is there anyone else out there wanting to do this swap for a GSM Storm? I can have the Javelin in about a weeks time they tell me...

    Not yet Sirthinks. As far as I know right now Rogers has world exclusive on it.

    EDIT: Thanks to correction below this info is incorrect. However there is not a CDMA version out yet.

    seems like a great phone; keeping the traditional 83xx keyboard, boldish style, an obvious bigger display, added both gps and wifi in the same device, but 3G capability still absent; smart tactic, as they couldnt put 3g in it, then it would be better than the bold, then thered be a bunch of angry customers. all in all, there will not be a blackberry with the biggest baddest display and wifi, gps, and 3g.. if they do get there which they probably will, there will be another phone with a bigger screen, or the 4g network may be out by then! lol
