We had the Palm Pre in our hands today -- take a look at the pictures, including comparison shots!

Definitely take a look at all of our Palm Pre articles -- conveniently listed across the top of every Palm Pre special coverage article. Coming soon - videos and more of Dieter's hands-on impressions with the Palm Pre. We're even going to try to record a special TreoCentral TreoCast about the Palm Pre. Keep your browsers tuned to TreoCentral.com!

For now, we'll just leave you with the hands-on photos below, they truly speak louder than words!

Great pics of the Pre Dieter... I am really excited about this phone. I am definitely getting it providing the keyboard is better than that of the Treo Pro. I have to be able to text fast on this phone or it will be a deal breaker.

It might sound like an odd deal breaker, but I text A LOT...

Anywhere from 5,000-8,000 texts every month... Yeah... I know, A LOT!

An on screen keyboard would be nice maybe someone will develope a 3rd party app for that, this way when its rotated in landscape mode you can still type w/o having to rotate back and slide out the physical keyboard. Yes the Pre's keyboard is better for one handed use but the only feature on the Instinct that I like is the keyboard, I could text and compose emails like a beast with the on screen keyboard. Hopefully it comes out in June since I wont be eligible for an upgrade till then.

8,000 texts a month? doubt it. Is that inbound AND outbound or just outbound ones that you are typing?

You can doubt it all you want to. But it is the truth... It's usually around 5,000 texts but sometimes I get to 8,000. And yes it is inbound and outbound. As I stated before, I text A LOT...

Yea i understand i do about the same with text messaging 5-8 thousand a month and if the keyboard is not better than the treo pro i wont get this phone i wonder if it has a touchscreen keyboard on the screen. either way i cant wait for this phone man i have the htc touch pro right now im not complaining too much about it the screen quality is amazing and the camera is great but for some reason i never have been a windows mobile lover i like palm, cant wait!

Nice, photos. Love the Phone! But on some of the pics, they phone looked really greasy?! Kinda nasty...

I know the screen looks like a grease magnet (only downside) but for 20 bucks i could get an invisible shield to fix it!


(look up "invisible shield" reviews are amazing)

hey is that a palm centro its sitting on top of in that pic.
anxiously awaiting release and already own a centro....that size is PERFECT FOR ME.

tnx for the pics

i looked at the "invisible shield" and it is amazing and i will order it for my pre when i get it!!!

I want one for free! Otherwise no thanx! Mind is faster than that crap =D
