Default do you think we will be able to swap the javelin trackball to the bold?

do you think its possible to put in that new javeline trackball into the bold? I hear its an improvement and it doesnt seem like they are that much different from all the others

That answer refers to the 81xx,83xx and 88xx series BB's

Not sure about the 9000 though

As far as I know, the trackball assembly on the Bold can't be taken apart.

It looks like the Bold uses the same, slightly bumpy trackball as those devices, so my guess is no. Besides, don't you think someone would be screaming this out if the Bold has an optical trackball versus a mechanical one?
