The Pixi is definitely on the right track...I bought the Pre for the software in spite of the hardware.

Things I don't like about the hardware:

1) Slider -- the engineer in me knows that moving parts quickly break, and it is just a nuisance to have to open.

2) Keyboard -- I don't know if it is that my fingers and thumbs are too flat, but I have a really hard time typing on the Pre. I've been through a Treo 650 and then a 680, and much prefer their keyboards over the Pre.

3) Small screen -- It is just too small for my aging eyes.

I am getting Pixi envy now. I want a Pixi with a 20% larger screen, Treo keyboard and WIFI. I am also glad that Palm retained Touchstone charging. That is the one hardware feature I like about the Pre.
