My #1 wish for a tweak: turn off the rotating function of the navigation wheel so that it can just be used as a d-pad.

So can you normally use is as both, or does it only rotate?

It normally works as both, and you'll find lots of accidental cursor moves occuring. It scrolls inconsistently and is slippery, so overall hard to control. The same wheel is also the d-pad. I'd rather it >just< be a d-pad. Have searched the registry with every way I can think of, no luck. I'm thinking either a new registry entry has to be created, or it's just not an option...

So can you normally use is as both, or does it only rotate?

I hope you enjoy your Shadow. I just got mine today.

Initial reactions:

Hardware: The wheel is unresponsive and you have to spin slowly. Nothing like an iPod wheel. However, the device is very sleek and looks amazing.
Software: What can I say? It sucks. The icons look AWFUL. Pixelated beyond reason. It is 2007, icons should look sleek.

What kind of programs can I install on this guy? This is my first smartphone. I had an MDA before. Any differences (other than a non-touchscreen) I should know about?
