    I am just wondering what would make the trackball light blueish?? Even the menu and search icon looks blue.

    Thanks

    A white LED gives off a blueish color. Other then that it would have to do with the color of the material the LED is shining through.

    What would make the trackball light up BLUE??

    Maybe the phone is just having a bad day...

    It might have lost it's dog...
    Maybe it can't find a job...
    It has no friends...
    Maybe, just maybe it's worried about 2.1...

    Hahaha... ;)

    But anyway, seriously, it displays a BLUE hue? My Orb shows white, it is probably the LED...

    Your question though brings ideas to mind, that multiple LED's could allow for different colored indication for events, such as alarms, or that all important person you didn't want to miss a call from - by showing RED, lol... you wouldn't have to look to see who it is, just answer based on color, now that would be cool!

    hahaha, I should Patent that IDEA, lol, but remember, you read it here first!!!
    (joke)

    Happy Trails!

    :cool:

    That would definately be sweet to make it light up a different color!

    different power input can make LED's light up different colors, so it is possible, i think on the N1 it lights BLUE if you are on bluetooth? but that is the only other color they have gotten... roooting may make this more doable but i have no clue

    So after reading your question and seeing your avatar I believe it is only natural that your heroes ball is blue.;)

    You had to know someone would say it.

    Yes it used to be white. It has been doing it for about a month now. So somehow it magically turned blue.

    Let's see a picture. Are we talking REALLY blue or just a faint hint of the hue?

    Actually, my Sidekick could like up one of 7 or 8 different colors, depending on what the alert was. I had it something linke blue for text messages, purple for email, red for missed calls, etc. And it would cycle through the colors each blink if I had multiple things. It also lit up with all the colors for calls, which was pretty trippy cool. :)

    If you figure it out lemme know, I'd like a lil' color in my trackball.

    On that note, I wonder how hard it would be to crack my phone open and put a red led in there...

    it should be a multi color LED no need to break! just hack the crap out of it and have it put less power into the led till it's red.. but that is way to hard for me to think about

    Did you have on some sort of blue nail polish that might have rubbed on or some sort of ink on your finger from a pen or something. Here's a question is the ball lighter then it was or dimmer. Maybe one of the led broke behind the ball and your seeing the material more behind it giving you a bluish tint. My other theory is your phone has evolved into something else all together and i would get rid of it before it ends the world.

    You been using Viagra? I have read that one of the possible side effects is a blue tint to what you see. :rolleyes:

    "...Ocular side effects have included mild and transient blue or colored-tinged vision..."

    Do you know anyone else locally with a Hero you can compare with? Or can you stop in at a Best Buy or Sprint Store to compare?

    Guess we all kinda got silly!
