Compared to the iPhone, the tipster found the Pre's screen a little more easily scratched and its back a little more resilient (though easily fingerprinted). The tipster also states that the Pre is in mass production right now, which would be necessary if the rumors about an imminent launch are true. The photos show that the Pre definitely has a smaller footprint than the iPhone, though we know it's thicker to accommodate the slide-out QWERTY. [PreThinking]
