    While it's a lot harder to maintain nice looking nails with my natural nails (i.e. mine tend to break, split, peel)...again they aren't allowed to be any longer than just past my fingertips.

    Typing & 10-key are tons easier & more accurate with shorter nails, a necessity for me. This means I'll have no problem with the capcitative screen. So the answer to whether or not your wife will have problems with the screen, will depend on how long she keeps her nails.

    I think this is why I was grossed out by them. It was so unnatural and the girls who had them always had painful issues with fungus and getting nails painfully ripped off... Regular manicured nails look fine. No need to go overboard

    On a similar note, it's really surprising to me how many people on this forum mention buying two or more Pre's next month for them and other members of the family. First of all, it doesn't strike me that everyone in the family would necessarily like the Pre. Second of all, why would you buy more than one unit when you haven't used it for a few weeks. Wouldn't that be better?

    I would recommend buying one Pre and seeing how it works (with or without nails) and then buying another one if desired.
    Why would this matter when Sprint gives you a 30 day trial period?

    As for capacitive screens and nails, no go, you must use fingers. I really wish they could work around the glove thing though.

    I think there's a North Face store in Chicago. And they'll be back for the fall line, so says the article.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Uh, yeah...but how will someone with long nails touch the screen with their fingers without also touching it with their nails in a comfortable way???

    By using the pad of your finger instead of the tip I guess. Like the area you use when you take fingerprints.

    *grin* I stress the last two words of my post, "comfortable way". That may work from time to time, but consistently that would get very annoying. The Pre is made to be touched constantly!

    seems like many don't understand that the nail tip tends to curve downward when it grows beyond the tip of the finger, making it difficult to touch a screen with the pad of the finger without putting the finger at an awkward angle & putting a lot of pressure on the underside of the nail. this is why i keep mine short.

    I have nails but they aren't extremely long. I can use the pads of my finger to navigate. I don't think nails will be a problem being that there is a pull out keyboard. if your nails are really long you will have to use the side of your finger to type and navigate the touch screen but it's doable. I wear contact lenses and I have learned how to remove them without my fingernails getting in the way.
