same for me:
using the BB10 Simulator on OSX 10.7 the mouse speed is too slow to really work with it.
I'm using the simulator unscaled on my 27" iMac Screen
normaly my mouse is set to fast speed on OSX
if using Parallels as VM all works well in my VMs to run W7 or Ubuntu on top of OSX.
if running VMWare's Fusion for PlayBook or AlphaDevice Simulator it's very very slow.
Please please use the mouse speed set by OSX.
Or: provide a VM for Parallels. I tried to import the PlayBook or AlphaDevicve Simulators into Parallels, but it didn't work.
for me the mouse speed is so slow, that I'm debugging on devices at the moment.

Thanks for the system spec details ekke. We have the simulator team following this thread and trying to reproduce what you're seeing.
I've also passed on my observations to the team of your machine when you showed me the slow speed at the unconference at BB10 Jam.
aaah - now I know the face behind 'tnell' ;-)
that's why I like to go to conferences
I wanted to make sure they have the explaination of what slow looks like and what fast mouse users consider unusable. Many of us don't use fast mouse settings so having your full OS specs and mouse speed settings are helpful.
added 2 screenshots: my configuration of Apple MagicMouse .....
Zeigerbewegung == Mouse Movement, langsam == slow, schnell == fast
Using Parallels as VM I only check the box "SmartMouse" and all works same way under Windows 7 oder Ubuntu then on my Mac

Let me just also point out that I am on a MacBook Pro:
and having the mouse speed at the third fastest setting.
I am using VMWare Fusion since it came out with different Windows VMs and I don't experience any mouse speed issue. Only the BB10 simulator has that. I am also running the VM in full resolution on my 27" monitor so scaling should not be an issue.
Thanks for your help in advance.

good to see that I'm not the only one ;-)

I'm also experiencing this. It takes me about 4 passes with the mouse just to get from one edge of the simulator window to the other.
I'm running on an iMac with a 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 with 8 GB of RAM, so I sure hope my specs aren't the problem.
