the only 2 things i want

a touch screen and a better calendar program.

 

the palm centro got it pretty good, but its too **bleep** small. the blackberry would be perfect with a touchscreen. that ball gets annoying after a bit and kinda slow. its either too sensitive or doesnt move enough. especially on the pearl with the texting.

 

and the calendar program sucks. its only black and white and you sync it to a color driven outlook? there should be different colors on each day for each catagory. much like that of outlook. what that black dot? is it an appointment? is it a birthday? do i have a bill due? also, what i love is when something goes for a few days, like traveling, it crosses over all the dates, not just a dot in each day, one long line. 

and maybe, not that big of a problem for me but still, the blackberry is all high class and business, why are the option screens so bland? maybe take some time and put drop down boxes, and GUI's. 

 

other than that i love it. maybe someone knows of a calendar program out that thats like that that i dont know of.

Re: the only 2 things i want

for the caressing thingy, check the near future Blackberry Storm (or Thunder, I don't know what they'll choose in the end).
I have many friends who got the iPhone after smartphones with keyboards, they are all unanimous : touchscreens suck for typing. Maybe with viigo or something vocal...

About the calendar program, I don't even know if it has been upgraded in the OS 4.6 ? Anyone having the Blackberry Bold care to give us some insights ?

not an ipod touchscreen where the whole this is a touchscreen, just the screen the size it is now. just make that a touch screen and have more of a gui interface. the notpad looking text is dated looking and confussing.

Re: the only 2 things i want

a small screen touchpad ? I don't know... whenever I use one, I feel like Hulk trying to type on a QWERTY keyboard. "keys" are already too small on the iPhone !
