    Dieter. Where are you? Did you have a chance to handle the phone at CES? If so, how did the screen feel?Did it feel the same or different?

    I don't think Palm allowed anyone to touch the phone let alone hold it. I think the only one who has held it for an extended period of time was Josh from Engadget when he was on Late Night. I bet Palm was backstage though to have a "presence" in case he decided he liked it "too" much

    Sorry Timmy, SERO does not work with the Pre.

    Will the curved screen present a problem applying a protector?

    doubtful, might have to be a little more careful of bubbles but it should be pretty straight forward.

    As a Zagg user I concur. It really looks good on my Treo Pro and I can keep it in my pocket (keys and all) without worry about scratches.

    there was a link on here posted from profootballtalk.com and they posted the video of Dieter playing with the Pre at CES for about 10 minutes or so.

    The DS has a resistive touch screen, as do most other devices (all previous Palms and most WinMo machines). Capacitive screens use a different technology, so they need special screen protectors, but they do make such things.

    On a resistive screen, the touch is registered by pushing two layers together--the electrical interaction occurs between these two sheets. On a capacitive screen, the electrical interaction occurs between your finger and the screen, so you need a protector that preserves the electrical interaction.

    For example, on a resistive screen, you can use gloves. Can't do that on a capacitive screen. I read somewhere that someone produced a special set of gloves for the iPhone that worked with the capacitive screen. The stylus is another item that has to be specially designed to work with a capacitive screen--regular styli won't work, but there are some made to work with capacitive screens.

    My friend has a Zagg for his iPhone and it makes no difference at all. Hopefully the one for the Pre doesn't just cover the screen, it should cover all the front so that there is no raised protector just covering the screen.

    And for gloves for capacitive screens....gizmodo did a review of 3 of them. They range from 35-50 and I would expect more in the lineup this winter.

    Hehe. I've seen that picture before, I didn't even notice that the button was missing.

    That made me chuckle.
