    Is the Trackwheel Gone Forever?

    Advertisement



    We have all now seen the pictures on either Pinstack, Engadgetmobile, BBhub, Blackberrycool, or Engadgetmobile.com and their all talking about how the new multimedia BB 8100 doesnt have a trackwheel and now instead in the middle of the device a trackball.....

    Does anyone know if for now on there will be no more trackwheels on the Blackberry? Even the full qwerty keyboards like the 8700c because I just cant picture a trackball on an 8700c!

    I'm quite certain they will likely go to this type of scrolling device on future handhelds. They won't go back and redesign old devices. It is possible on the QWERTY version of the 8100, slated for Q1 '07 according to some here, may still have the trackwheel, but who knows. I'd surmise that most or all Suretype devices going forward will be like the 8100, assuming the feedback they get is positive.

    I've looked at all the photos, and none of them show the right side.

    How is a person sure that there is no track wheel?

    Looking like November-January depending on the release on TMO. If September is accurate, 3 months later would be my guess. So December?

    As long as my 8700 holds out until then, that's OK.

    Lewis,
    Everyone who's posted throughout different sites on the net, confirms there is definitely no trackwheel. We can't be positive until released, but I'm thinking it's highly unlikely it include a trackwheel.

    And just how do you keep the thing clean? The only reason I went optical with my pc mouse was b/c those stupid (there's really no way to say this w/o sounding wrong) mouse balls got infected with various detrius from my desktop. Imagine it in a pocket of a scrub set? Hmmm not really sure I like this idea myself, but will def watch for user reviews, cuz I kinda don't like the trackwheel either, lol.

    tntheat05 nextel are always the last to get new model 'cause they are on iDEN and there's only 2 providers that offers iDEN in N. America Telus with their MIKE phone and Nextel. And Nextel should release the 8700 series before new models

    I'm not a fan of either the trackball or trackwheel, so I'll keep an open mind!

    I like the trackwheel, but will be open to accepting a different solution if need be.
