Those of you who've had a chance to play with the Incredible, how do you like the trackpad it's got?
One thing I loved about the Nexus One was the fact that it had a trackball. What this means is that when you're browsing and using the trackball to select a tiny link, you can just keep rolling the ball and the selection will keep moving as you roll it. I don't have to take my finger off the ball.
On my Winmo phone with a trackpad, every time I slide my finger over the selected link moves over once, which is annoying because that means I need to slide over the trackpad several times in order to get to a link in the middle of the page.
If this doesn't make sense, what I mean is:
Let's say there are five hyperlinks on a webpage, left to right.
To get from the first to the second, on the N1 you just put your finger on the trackball and roll it to the right a little bit. To get from the first to fifth, you roll it to the right farther. You never have to pick up your finger and place it back on the left side of the trackball.
With the crappy trackpad I hate, to get from first to second, I slide my finger over the trackpad once. To get from first to fifth, I have to slide my finger over the trackpad four times, from left to right, and I need to pick my finger up and place it back at the beginning each time. Annoying.
On the Incredible, is it more like the Nexus One's trackball or is it more the style I don't like? Believe it or not my decision to switch from my Droid to the Incredible is almost completely dependent on this.
