    If you can find out, can it be used with a stylus or it is fingertip only? Wife wants a new PDA to replace her tired TX. Wanted to stick with Palm, but she didn’t like my Treo. Had her look at the G1, but like the iPhone, it only works with fingertouch. She want’s to use a stylus (or her fingernails).

  • Looks like fingertip only based on the demo so far…

  • They do make “capacitive styluses” for the iPhone. I’d imagine that this would work on the Pre as well.

  • I’m going to get a hands-on look at it later today so will find out as much as possible then. Palm just opened up their private lounge a minute ago to event attendees, so I suspect that Engadget and Gizmodo are there now. The lounge will be open until 6pm today, so I’ll stop by later on when the crowd has hopefully died down a bit.

  • Please, ask about an expansion slot. I feel like they would’ve mentioned it if it had one, but 8GB isn’t enough for my media, I’d love to put a microSDHC card in it.

    (Though it won’t stop me from getting it.)

  • Jenn, are u able to find out if stay connected when phone calls come in?
