Same here. Only it was more like "Wanna mess with it?" Really cool device. Asked me to "close other applications" before using the camera though. Wonder if it ran out of memory?!?! That didn't settle too well with me, but other than that the device was really neat. The keys will take a little getting used to, as the center column is a little lower than on my 7100i. The interface (Zen theme) is incredible, not to mention the screen! They had a default video loaded on there, and the playback was flawless. The trackball was a little funky at first, but you have to get used to pressing a little harder than the ball on my Apple mouse. It didn't register that i wanted to move it the first time. It was so stinkin sweet though. I almost want to go back tomorrow over lunch just so i can play with it again! I've got picts but nothing better than what's out there. Just the 8100 next to an 8700. Anyway... freakin sweet thing. Can't wait till they come out!
