Re: navigationMovement() - dx parameter


since there is no mouse pointer on BlackBerry, dx and dy have no pixels association - they represent the number of "clicks", or "mickeys" as mouse driver people call it.  If you enable Options -> Screen/Keyboard -> Trackball (or Trackpad, depending on the device) -> Audible roll, you will even hear those clicks when you roll your trackball or slide a finger over your trackpad.
