| | Here is my question
I have had only one berry, the 7100i that I currently use.
I am looking to upgrade at some point (nothing urgent) but everything I look at has the trackball. It appears that the 8703 was the last berry we will see with a clickwheel unless i am mistaken.
The curve I tried with the ball did not have "clicks" as you turn the ball, like we get when we scroll the wheel. I think this is huge. One thing I really like about the wheel is I can often navigate thoughtlessly or effortlessly through my programs because I "know" where they are and I can just get there by feel, i.e., three clicks this way, four clicks that way. Am I mistaken that with the ball you have to actually be looking at the screen to see where you are in navigating around?
Perhaps of more critical importance: how is brickbreaker on a trackball? I can only assume that scores are not as high.
I am reluctant at this point to give up my clearly obsolete 7100i for this as well as many other reasons. My wife has a 8703e with Sprint, and I do like EVDO, but for me really email and phone is 90% of what I need in a berry. So I am not inclined to change.
Someone please tell me I am wrong and that there will be a badass EVDO Rev A berry with GPS and a ton of memory out on the market with a clickwheel sometime soon.
Can anyone please elaborate?
