Here's a breakdown to others who don't want to read the article:
* "I am personally a big fan of Palm...", "Regular readers know that I have a very long history with Palm devices, having started using them in 1997..."
That being said, it is a fair review. Nothing about battery life. Good to see consistently good reviews regarding gorilla glass and the soft touch covering. Looks like it runs smooth for the most part, but there were multiple times where scrolling down lists would be pretty jagged and touches wouldn't register. This is consistent with videos shown here demoing WebOS 2.0 earlier.
"There is some slight side-to-side movement of the display, commonly called the oreo effect, and I was seriously hoping that Palm had fixed this issue. Unfortunately, they did not and I am worried that the device may loosen up over time like the Pre Plus did."
Sounds like developing oreo can be a problem. From the forums seems like there's variability on build quality. Some people say there's none, other says there's some wobble.
Looks like there's no changes to the keyboard.
Interesting to see him only mention webOS fans in that last paragraph asking if the phone was "right for you."
