    Got mine this morning too. First customer in the Cwmbran O2 store and the proud owner of a pre and touchstone. The phone is stunning (hardware build quality seems excellent too), but my touchstone isn't working. I can only get it to charge from the USB port, despite having the correct back on, the TS plugged into the wall. Think it'll have to go back later

    got mine today, yay!

    there was one other guy buying before I got to the shop (about 20 mins after they opened) and few other people enquirying.

    spent all morning playing around with it and i love it! they build quality is quite good especially considering how bad everyone was making it out to be. still getting used to WebOS.

    no special touchstone deals at my O2 and at £50 I think i'll wait until Amazon or someone can offer it cheaper.

    Sounds good!!

    Someone start a thread so you can all start posting pics and opinions of your experiences! Hopefully none of these will contain the infamous "cracked screen" or "it keeps rebooting" or the "oreo/loose screen effect"

    Apart from this place, I do not know anywhere else on the web that is targeted to UK owners of the Pre [resources, etc] so I presume we're sticking to this place for the latest info?

    I have it charging on the Touchstone but I now need to wait on O2 to port my number over. Unfortunately I was unable to port my number back to O2 pre². It is a beautiful paperweight at the moment.

    Someone who picked up their UK Pre today is rocking 1.1.3, see here and look for comments by user 'Aaron Rhodes':

    Thats what I might do, I'll see how much it bugs me over the weekend. Otherwise Im a more than happy Pre user.

    I got a free touchstone and cover, they had a box of them beside the till point in my O2 store. Maybe they were only available in larger stores

    Not tried the google calender sync yet ben, will let you know how it goes

    So neither Edinburgh nor Dundee had free Touchstones but Glasgow and Aberdeen (as per a user comment on Dieter's launch article) did. That is a bit disappointing. Considering the lack of interest this morning in most places I could have easily made my way to a store that was giving out freebies had I known.

    Yes my googlemail calender sync is working fine! Are you using the email address you registered with google or your gmail address. I have both registered.

    No free TS for me either. Tried haggling for a discount at least too but they weren't budging :-(

    I just rang Edinburgh back and explained about the Glasgow and Aberdeen stores providing them and the manager explained it must have been certain stores because it is not a company wide initiative.

    Im not sure I follow, I am using my @gmail.com email the calendar name is showing correctly. After some experimenting I have found that one way syncing is working

    i.e. I create an event on my pre and it appears on my google calendar but if I create an event or edit it elsewhere it doesnt sync back to my pre. Neither have any of the pre-existing appointments in my calendar
