My first experience with the phone has been awesome. The phone is much lighter than my G1 (and is even favorable to even my car key), it's faster, it's stable (although I haven't been able to root or replace the ROM on it yet, hee hee), and the screen is much better. I was definitely afraid of giving up a hardware keyboard, but with Swype, it's very easy to use. I'll post a full video review at some point, but for now I need to get back to playing with my phone.
While you wait, here's a picture I took from the phone on the 5MP camera:
