    Ok so I got a few minutes with the Pre.
    Amazing! First let me say I didn't get to play with the entire OS, it was locked at the set up screen.

    Feel:
    The riverstone metaphor is under rated. This thing feels GREAT. SOLID but kind of organic, its kind of hard to explain but it feels GREAT

    The pictures of the screen blending to the device it very true. You don't tell the difference when touching the screen or the phone!

    The slider. Very simple the best slider I have ever felt. When open its like a expensive knife when the handle is balanced with the blade, or maybe its just because it rest in my palm well.

    The keyboard. It won't be a problem for me. I'm used to the Treo755 KB, its better in the centro kb and IMO better then the Treo Pro KB; maybe because the keys are harder.

    OS: I didn't get far with that at all. But everything seemed responsive, but I wouldn't say fast. iphone speed at least.
    The phone app seemed to take a second to load but all good still.

    Also I just wanted to say the OS as a whole looks amazing. It just feels fresh and new and I promise a lot of people will be impressed with just the call screen alone. The speakerphone and earpiece are very very clear. Much better then my diamond or any treo in the past.

    If you ever get to see one again, check to see if it can record videos! There have been rumors that it may support video recording.

    1. Yes, worse.
    2. I didn't turn it up very much but it was very clear. ( i was in my car with the window down and radio on)

    I also would like to know the loudness of the speaker if possible please. Preferably, in comparison to the Iphone and the Touch Diamond (I had the HTC Fuze, aka the touch pro), which I both found to not be loud at all.

    quick question, in the video it seems like your applying a good amount of pressure on the screen, hows the sensitivity factor? iPhone like or do you have to apply pressure?

    When you put in the email address does it have to be your main email address or do you need to put a google address?

    Two things.. first I think it was better I was trying to looking throught my cell screen to get the video and
    2nd it was pretty good but since I'm used to touch a WM phone the added pressure was a habits. Also I think i did that because the entire surface is pretty hard so I couldn't feel a difference between the body and the screen

    I think but can't confirm whenever the phone is reset you need to enter the password you used to set up the device similar to the G1.
    So whatever email you entered to to begin w/ any email should be fine but i'll double check tomorrow
