    Ok if I was reading this post I wouldnt believe it...but it actually happened today.

    My bro Austin (forum member; austin.n) had heard about the touchstones being out for pre-sale (pun intended) and while shopping at a Best Buy store asked an employee if they had them. To his surprise the guy told him no... but offered to show him a demo phone! After he played with it and texted me, I decided I had to come down to have a look for myself. I honestly thought he was pulling my chain.

    I was wrong.





    After holding the phone...which was a totally functioning, non-activated pre, I had some thoughts;


    1. It was a lot more solid than I feared it was going to be after reading a couple of reviews that said it was "plasticiky"
    2. The keyboard seemed awesome...though I didnt actually type with them...just pretended to.
    3. Above all - what surprised us both was how much smaller it was in person than what we had been seeing in videos online. We still loved it and think the form will be nice in our pockets...hopefully the screen size will still be satisfactory once we see things on it.

    I am still surprised that people expect the Pre to be some sort of gigantic phone! Must be because in all the videos, the camera is usually zoomed in on the Pre, so it makes it look larger than it is. I looked at the specs early on, and also used the Phonearena.com comparison tool, so I won't be surprised if the Pre is only slightly larger than my current Sprint Touch!

    Lucky ******* for getting to see one early...as for me, I don't want to have to go home empty handed, the first Pre that I will see, will be the one I will be taking home with me.

    the real question is "what does the guy in your picture need?"

    So basically today has been the day of completely uneducated Best Buy employees breaking NDA and the release rules left and right?

    That's intense. I feel like going to the local Best Buy and asking for a Pre, odds are they'll just give it to me.
    Palm III -> Visor Prism -> Dell Axim X30 Hi -> HTC Apache -> HTC Mogul -> HTC Touch Pro

    That is also painfully obvious in the selection of new threads created with all sorts of ridiculous subjects...

    "Will my new Pre cure my terrible body odor?????" (a made up example)

    Seriously!

    Maybe McNamee can state that claim in their next Pre commercial.
