9700 Onyx - The Ultimate BlackBerry...So Far
The first thing you'll notice about the 9700 is the optical trackpad instead of a pesky trackball which, as we all know, can be a hassle. ie. Getting dirty, not rolling smoothly, not rolling in one or more directions, etc.
From what I've heard about the trackpad, it is a huge improvement and takes very little getting used to.
The Onyx also boasts a 3.2 MP camera with autofocus and flash. Wi-fi, 3G and GPS. There's really nothing missing in this device.
Its about the same size as my beloved 8900 and has a Bold 9000 keyboard with those chrome frets between rows that everyone loves. It also has the Bold pleather back with an improved battery door. Not sure how its better, but it just is.
Anyway, I'm not pleased that it won't be coming to Rogers anytime soon. I really want to try that trackpad out.
