It's ridiculous that people are suggesting playing games to 'train' yourself to touch the screen more accurately. Truth of the matter is, placing the cursor (when it decides to appear in the first place) is a nightmare on the PlayBook. I'd love to see the cursor placer that appears in WordToGo appear across the entire OS - it's so easy to pinpoint a place with the WordToGo cursor - even easier than the magnifying glass on the iPad.

Placing the cursor to edit text is not a nightmare but it is definitely a bad dream. It is very hard on email where there is NO ZOOM function. It is also very hard to fix a typo in a url in the browser's address bar. I've suggested that they create another keypad that comes up with a diagonal swipe from the lower right - brings up a cursor keypad - left/right/up/down, pageup/down/home/end.

chrisfoxx is right - the blue arrow that helps selecting text in WordToGo is awesome!
Since those arrows already appear to select text, RIM should also use them to make placing the cursor easier.
A cursor keypad - like f2 suggested - is also a nice idea but there should be plenty of better sollutions for touchscreen devices.

RIM is in tough - they have delays and a stillborn interim OS7 - QNX is going to be a great OS but they may die in the delay.
They are screwed for at least 9 months.
