    trackball good thing

    Advertisement



    First off I'm not left handed, but I like using my balcberry with my left hand. The biggest issue was using it one handed with my left hand (espcially when driving) I think the trackball in the center will be great for that and will help those left handed people.goooo trackball!

    I'm left handed and I find myself using my right hand to use the trackball more often than not.

    Hi gruv, have you tried the 8100 simulator? I downloaded it and have been messing around, and I wouldnt mind having the pearl based on what Ive seen.

    Here is the thread for the simulator..

    I dig the trackball. I thought I would be bummed on it because I like the wheel but I for one am already over the wheel. The trackball allows for side to side and up and down scrolling

    As a Treo refugee, I'm not sure I see the advantages of a trackball over the five-way rocker with a center select button. That was the best I've ever had for one-handed operation. I can't operate the 8700 with one hand because of the need to press the alt button for lateral cursor movement.

    I'm right handed and for some reason I use the Pearl almost exclusively with my left hand. It just feels better.

    Meh. I'm left handed and have no problems with the wheel. I'll see when the 8800 is released...

    Trackball is more left handed friendly. It also allows you to use the phone one handed a lot better than a BB with a trackwheel. I tend to use my left hand a little more to move the trackball, but I do use my right hand as well.
