I agree, I am very fond of the thumbwheel and will miss it more than anyone knows. My eyes are not what they were in the past so I usually hold my berry at arms length. The thumbwheel makes it easy to use with one hand especially while driving. I have no idea why RIM changed to a trackball but they obviously ignored all the survey's I filled out.
