    Now that i look at it, i would also love to have one, the trackball takes only aa month or so until it gets dirty and ugly! This trackball would be great for most users, the only problem i see with this if the berry is droped of its face, say good bye to the track ball! I am fairly sure rim thought of this idea and decided to go to rubberry like substance, it would be a pain to replace trackballs, as thouse things would break so easilly and damage the logic board!

    I would pay for one of these glass trackballs. The LEDs behind mine would shine better.

    I think a clear plastic composite (similar to what you would get if using hot glue-gun.) would work better...if you dropped your BB device, it could shatter the glass and cause it to cut not only the user, nut the rubber rollers on the inside of the track-ball assembly.

    There is always a chance that glass can break, but then again we are working with glass pyrex here. Borosilicate is a hard glass used by scientists to handle highly volatile chemicals and temperatures. Like I said in a previous post, I have made a two inch multi colored pyrex marble and used it on pavement like a rubber bouncey ball. Not only would it bounce back into my hand, it never even had a crack. Now I'm not saying it wouldn't break, shatter, or crack....mine just didn't. I should maybe make a video of this to demonstrate the strength and hardness of glass pyrex.

    I think a 5.5mm glass pyrex marble would not even break if you through it with all your might at a paved floor, let alone if you had it in your blackberry and just dropped it from a few feet. Your blackberry would break before the marble. This is not a guarantee because glass can and will break...it just depends on the glass, the shape, and the situation.

    I am about to drive to my glass lab now to start the experimenting. wish me luck!

    good luck! Although i am personally quite doubtful of glass being good material for trackball, it sure would be interesting to know how it will go!
