I didn't get the point of OS 6 on the 9700. To me it was a total waste of effort, though I know I may have been alone in that sentiment. OS 6 on the 9700 didn't make any sense to me

Well, the combination of that user interface with a hard keyboard and a touch screen is beautiful. It is all making total sense to me. Using the trackpad and keyboard for the navigation scenarios I mentioned in my earlier post is still the long way around, but if you use touchpad gestures it really is as quick to do those tasks.

I have experienced screwball behavior on pages when using the trackpad. Some of it is probably me touching the screen by accident; and some is probably me not understanding what I'm doing, such as when I'm zooming when I want to scroll up. But my solution is to use the touchscreen almost exclusively to navigate web pages and only use the trackpad when I absolutely have to.

All in all, I think the 9900 is almost a home run. Call it an easy triple that would be a home run except for the battery life (though I'm yet to be sure the battery life will be as bad for me as many are complaining it is).
