Everything I hoped it would Be. the Browser is Much much Improved and makes watching youtube a pleasure. No regrets.

The only thing I find weird is the trackball. Its gonna take some getting used to.

Just out of curiosity, what device are you coming from? If from a previous trackball device, what is different about it?

I used a Bold at WES and it seemed to me that the trackball was the same size and material, it was just not as exposed from the case as much. It doesn't stick out as much.

Yeah, It is set a bit deeper in the device or something. I noticed this when playing with one in the Orange shop the other day.

Finally somebody mentions youtube. Other thread, my questions are ignored or overlooked.

So how is youtube? Full screen, clearer etc? Just wondering. Thank you.

I'm in the process of updating my Bold now with all my applications and contacts etc - im not a huge fan of the new interface, but it will go on me i guess.

I guess you picked up 4 of them, no? Didn't waste much time hitting the Buy/Sell/Trade forum.

The trackball does seem set lower (coming from an 8300). Overall, the feel is different. The keys are nice but will take a little getting used to - it has a bar in between them - no gaps. Its a little bit bigger than the curve but the leather backing is nice.

The interface is nice but it quite a while to load the Roxio Media Mgr. Phone quality is great but haven't used it enough to say that its better than the curve or the same.

Don't love the belt clip / case . I find it bulky but then again I like the old plastic belt clip that BB's used to ship with.

The screen is amazing - took a picture & the qulaity on the screen looked great. Don't like the Rogers logo in the middle of the wallpaper - will have to change that soon.

Its lower and it seems to stick a lil bit.

I was using a 8100 and a 8310. I had changed the trackballs on both devices twice, I love a clean trackball.
