    sorry for not posting the youtube link itself... Lol... Couldn't figure it out on Pre

    Once again Pre3 looks sleek, solid, and surprisingly thin. Looks fast as well. Can't wait.

    edit: Here is a review that comments on their impression of the build quality. Sounds like HP has brought a quality build to the Pre3.

    This is in the summary of the Trusted Reviews hands on:

    "Frankly, given our brief time with this handset, we were utterly taken with it. The form factor, the operating system, the keyboard, the screen, it all feels great."

    EXACTLY the point I've been making in here. Exactly. Slower, dual cores are not answer for smartphones right now.

We're sure there will be a few cracks that appear - beyond the obvious continued lack of an onscreen keyboard - when we test the phone properly but for now you can colour us impressed...
    I've yet to hear a person be disappointed in the Pre3 once they've played with it. I think there WILL be an on screen keyboard soon. It's already setup for the Touchpad with native scaling capability. It should be EASY to add it to the Pre3.

    I know, I know it's not a ready for prime time device but is it me or is there lag when swiping up from the gesture area? I noticed this before in other videos.

    I'm glad most reviews so far are good, but I'm still scratching my head on the new screen size. I realize that it is going to be the same aspect ratio as most Android phones out there, but compared to the Pre's current aspect ratio, the screen is only 1/8" wider... I just need to have one in my hot little hands and see it for myself if I like the screen.

    There is virtually no lag, if you can even call it that. Review the video, and press play/pause as fast as you possibly can. Look at the amount of time that really passes between the end of the swipe and the start of animation. It's less than 1/4 second. The animation takes as much time as the delay.

    Pre3 = 3.08"x1.85", 800x480, 259ppi, 5.70" squared area.
    Pre1 = 2.58"x1.72", 480x320, 186ppi, 4.44" squared area.

    The Pre3's screen is 28.5% larger than the Pre through Pre2 devices and it has 39.5% better pixel density. It's a BIG change.

    Here is another video. Toward the end, how the print feature works.

    I couldnt finish watching the video b/c of his nails, now thats an EPIC FAIL.

    It's kind of amazing just how fast the veer is. Too bad the Pixi wasn't like that (or the Pre for that matter). If the lower end phone can run that fast, that's good news for webOS in general.

    I think this is worth quoting. I do believe HP intends on delivering on Hardware!
