    Re: Touchscreen

    Most likely because the screen would get damaged too easily by being constantly tapped with a stylus.

    Don't know. The MDA holds up pretty well, along with the Treo 650 and 700. Good question...

    Re: Touchscreen

    Touch screens hammer battery life, and to be honest I hate the idea of having to get a stylus out just to send a quick email or SMS. Much better to have the full qwerty!!

    I think it was designed with a trackwheel for ease of use/one-handed use. Personally the QWERTY keyboard is one of its strongest selling features (aside security and stability).

    Re: Touchscreen

    I don't see a need for a touch screen. I had a Cingular 8125 before I bought the 8700. I have had many blackberries in the past but, wanted to try out the PDA approach. I sold it a week later because of the hassle of trying to do things on the go even make a phone call in your car, if you didn't have the name on voice dial. I say keep the berries the same. Maybe add voice dialing so you can call people from your bluetooth, but other than that no touch screen. Plus I like the fact that the 8700 were made smaller than previous versions with a full keyboard, if you add a touch screen there will be a need to increase the size of the unit.

    If BB had a touch screen, I wouldn't have one. See no point in it. Too annoying.

    Re: Touchscreen

    Wouldn't a touch screen make it easier to use? Similar to having a track dot and a touch pad for mouse function on a laptop ?
