BGR Posts First Impressions of the Palm Pre has a Palm Pre first impressions article up this morning.

Of the new smartphone, BGR writes:

“The screen is really responsive and blends right in with the casing — awesomely executed and the capacitive touch is so damn beautiful. We’d rate it just behind the iPhone but in front of the T-Mobile G1 as far as screens go.”

That’s some really good news about the display on the device that will reboot Palm. However, BGR isn’t as excited about the slider keyboard and exterior shell. Again, the author writes:

“The Pre feels really good in your hand in terms of size and shape, but there’s a real plasticky aura about it. Additionally, things aren’t looking good for that QWERTY either. When you try and type on the top row of keys, your finger hits the bottom part of the front piece and on top of that, you often hit multiple keys at the same time while typing.”

You can read the full article and check out some photos of the device on the BoyGeniusReport website.
