    Anything, basically. It's really cool.

    To be honest, I wasn't really into the trackball at first but it's really grown on me and turns out to be incredibly useful, especially in places where precision is critical -- like correcting an error while typing. It's great for playing games. It's awesome as a shutter button for the camera. I just find more and more uses for it every day.

    In fact, I have an iPod Touch and regularly wish there was a trackball on it because everything takes so much longer to do.

    My only concern is over time it might get dirty/discolored.
    gotta be careful with that... ive heard of a few trackballs getting stuck because of them getting dirty.

    Would have been cool if they had something like the curve 8520. A "touch screen" type deal.

    Once you start, you'll find uses for it everywhere.

    I really hope a mod allows the trackball to always glow white and just change colour for notifications!!

    That would be cool!!

    Why do people put such questions on this forum? It's like asking "What is the Power button on the top do?"

    The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask

    Agreed, but some questions should be not asked at all....

    Don't be a jerk. Lots of people have questioned the purpose of the trackball, esp if they came from iPhones. And it turned out to be a good discussion where lots of people found new uses for the seemingly unnecessary trackball.
