Apparantly, Doc31 over at PreCentral forums was able to obtain himself a little bit of 'me time' with the Palm Pre. A couple of quick notes which Doc made and I wrote with my brief hands on of the Palm Pre are exactly the same feeling and alike:
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 and 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.
