I totally agree with you your last statement!!! I either have to stop thinking about the build quality, exchange it or get an iPhone. Trust me, an iPhone is in the back of my head.

The trackball does seem a little loose compared to other BB trackballs, but this seem inherent in the design. Mine - though loose - scrolls perfectly, and though a little harder to press compared to some others (likely the result of no plastic "divot" around the trackball) it is fully functional.
Whenever I get critical of the build quality of the 8900 I look at the near perfect form factor, the faster processor and more memory compared to other BBs, marvel at the excellent call quality of mine, the high-res screen, the fact that it runs virtually bug-free, and feel good about having it.
