    I just recently downloaded classic. One cool feature is the onscreen dpad. Do you think an onscreen dpad would be a good idea when using webos? It can be a menu option and popup like the notifications. I found the dpad handy when trying to move the cursor to a certain spot.

    If Palm would include this in an update they wouldn't have to worry about spending extra money changing the pre design or making the center button a trackball. Again if they were planning on going that route.

    I wouldn't want it personally. You can already move the cursor in text by pressing and holding the orange button and moving your finger around on the screen.

    I kinda missed the dpad when I first got the Pre, but now I'm used to not having it, and don't find that there's anything I need it for. Dragging the screen to scroll is better, tapping to select is better, and orange button or shift to manipulate text is almost as good.

    Making the nipple should the D-Pad would make this phone so much more usable.

    And as for combo button/swipes for Copy/Paste, I'd like to see video of someone that can do it perfectly. Every time i see an attempt at using it the cursor goes everywhere, commands don't always register and the user is better off just manually retyping the sentence they're copying.

    Sometimes position the cursor isn't accurate. Also most time when trying to hold orange/shift key to select text or copy/paste I find myself running out of screen room. So I have to swipe several times. Maybe if moving cursor/selecting text was available in landscape that would be great.
