If this thing is the same size as the pixi, just with the pre form factor, then it should be easy to use. My pixi's touchscreen works great for how small it is, and the keyboard is small, but real easy to use, this is coming for a man at 5'11".

It is indeed the same size as the Pixi, but with the Pre's slide-out design. The screen size is identical, and most likely the keyboard is as well. I think this is a good tack for HP to take - two devices at two price points but with an easily identifiable "feel".

FAIL! At least the Pixi had a flash! on the camera that is a must for me. I gave them a chance to really bring it with there event & they failed on many levels. So much for thinking beyond. How abot thinking NOW. Oh gee I forgot they broke that promise too of devices being ready to ship in the weeks after there event. I have already moved on to Windowsphone7 and LOVE it. My short time with my Pre was nice. But RIP Palm. And really good luck Hp because your gonna need it to try and regain what ever little market share you have left. Your losing more as I type this...
