"Out of the box first thoughts: I spent a couple of hours with the device in New York at the launch event so I wasn't really surprised by the hardware of the G1. However, without the security tether attached to the device I was able to get a better feel for the device in your hand and overall construction quality. The soft touch back is comfortable and even though the device is a bit long the width is narrower than the iPhone and feels more like a phone. The trackball works very well and the textured finish of it keeps it from slipping under my thumb like my BlackBerry Curve pearl trackball does at times. The device is very responsive and switching between portrait/landscape and between applications is virtually instantaneous. The display looks fantastic and the touch capacitive display senses touch perfectly. The keyboard is quite usable, but I'll talk more about it in detail below."
