    I don't understand your comparisons, for example, how do you compare the feel of car tires to the feel of a mobile phone? similarly a set of tools, or even a video game console.

    I am wondering if you are equating weight with quality, and thus would have a problem with most mobile phones in general? especially light weight ones?

    or do you feel that the construction is poor, and there is too much wiggle or something, or the screen has inferior glass or something?

    I know you work, but, i figure if you can take the time to re-post a thread, you can take the time to reply to one as well.
    There are four lights.

    I know folks that spend $400 per tire, I would say $400 for tires isn't top of the line as well!
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    I used it at Best Buy and it seems extremely well built. The cost of the phone is $99 or free, yo udon't use off contract with phone pricing. Only a few people will ever pay for a phone off contract.

    Can't speak for the white one, but the black one I'm typing on now is just as solid and substantial as it can be. I'm overjoyed with the build quality, actually.
    I've tried both versions. Both very, very nice.

    I completely agree with you...esp since Pre 3 is my baby...

    But I have to admit, using the Veer for a few days now, I can't believe how much the smaller screen doesn't bother me at all. ( I could also imagine if I had a tPad to use with it, no need for a large phone then.)

    some people can touch anything, and if it isn't metal or glass, immediately consider it cheap. I think this is what's happening here.

    I hope Sprint gets the Veer too!

    I was in an AT&T store the other day looking at the Veer. I was very surprised how well built and snappy the little smartphone feels. I currently own a pre- and I didn't feel that the smaller screen was that bad. In fact, I felt that even though the screen was smaller, it was sharper, brighter, and more readable than my aging pre- screen.

    The build quality was very good. The slider moved up and down with ease and the little veer had a good weight...not too light as to make it feel cheap, not too heavy that you don't want to carry it around...just a good solid feel.

    It did have some slight slow downs, most notably after I downloaded Aliens vs Rednecks (during its install), but after that, I was lobbing projectiles at aliens, checking ESPN, and flipping through other apps with ease!

    I am now more excited to see what HP has to offer. "In the coming months" just cant come soon enough!
