Here’s a little gossip from the gadget world: Blackberry is about to replace the Bold with something really fantastic. Sources say they’re about to unveil a new lighter, smaller Bold with a finger pad cursor that replaces the Track Ball. For those of us who have had to have Track Ball operations, this comes as amazingly good news. The finger pad swiftly moves the cursor around with minimum effort. And there’s nothing to break. No more dust or lint removal, no more turning the Bold over and tapping it. And there’s also a rumor that it’s going to both AT&T and T Mobile. I saw a working prototype this weekend, and it’s a home run. Yippee!
