    Plastic might be cheaper but it scratches way to easily and even plastic can shatter / crack.
    Finger print resistant coating would be great.

    I agree with you on the Pre form factor. One of my favorite things about it is that the entire front of the phone is smooth and the screen and gesture area are all one.

    They should just build them with plastic and then coat them with a permanent form of the screen protectors that people buy to cover the plastic with.

    That way they are shatter and scratch resistant, and a lot lighter than the glass screens.

    Maybe Palm will be the first to use Glasstic!

    This should do nicely

    Gorilla Glass, or stick with the current scratch resistant plastic (mine has only a couple of very fine, hard too see scratches). And, for the love of God, please add a fingerprint resistant coating!!

    My old Curve 8330, despite always being in it's sleeve, scratched up quite a bit. Clearly a cheap plastic covering the screen.

    Well you have to remember. If the scratches become really bad, there are ways to buff them out of the plastic, but not the glass.

    By the way, this would be even better. It's real and is being used today!

    jeez $10 a square inch? Bet it's worth every penny. Put that **** on the glass house I'm living in, that way I can throw stones in it

    I have seen far fewer cracked glass screens on iOS and Android phone that I have seen cracked bezels/USB ports in Palm Pres - even with their small numbers in the marketplace. Glass and metal is definitely the way to go.

    I think they should use magnesium alloy like the new Toshiba laptops. I felt one in BestBuy and it was sooo light and the texture was really nice too.

    It's the best - but it adds considerably to the unit cost. Something for HP to consider none-the-less.

    The "river stone" form factor is dead. It went out the door with Skillman as he left....more squared-like and glass screen is the new form factor for the next Palm device.

    I'd rather have something that is more angular/industral like the ZuneHD over the riverstone.

    I've had my Pre 9 months and carry it in my pocket. No scratches at all. It looks just like the day I unboxed it. I'd still prefer glass on the next one.

    you seem to be under the impression that Gorilla Glass, and that glass the iPhone 4 uses that Jobs talked about being used in helicopters are the same thing.

    Gorilla Glass is not used on the iPhone 4. It is, however, used in the Samsung Galaxy S line.

    iFixit is the ones that claimed Gorilla Glass was used in the new iPhone, and they're also the ones who later said they're not so sure about that. Neither Corning (Gorilla Glass company) nor Apple have announced it as using it. Corning HAS announced that their glass is used in the Galaxy S line...

    What I really meant to emphasize is that I like how the Pre's screen and gesture area are not apart from each other in any way. This can be achieved on a different form factor, it doesn't have to be "river stone."

    I have a Zune HD and agree that the industrial feel/build is nice. The thing that I would change if WebOS were on it is I would take away the home button and the bottom plastic piece and make the the gesture area. The whole front would be one smooth piece.

    That's what I like. I think the Palm design should always include the smooth front, no physical buttons of any kind. Just the gesture area.

    My screen has no scratches in a year of use, but it's my first and only phone to have a crack
