Yes, I said had to. Needed it for a client. I'm syncing now. I've never felt the need to have one. Knowing my luck, I'll fall in love with it. I was a tad bummed that I couldn't put it off until the next gen comes out in a few months, but oh well.
So right off the bat I don't like how the mail app works. Maybe I'm missing a setting, but why doesn't it look more like Mail.app on OSX? There is enough screen for it. It's especially annoying because I have 2 accounts set up so I have to navigate quite a bit to get to one or the other.

Let go, Luke!
I personally find the UI very well-suited for touch interfaces. (That's not to say I don't have my big list of improvements in mind -- but I always do!)
Yea, I get that. But I don't need the entire screen to read a single email. In fact, most of the emails I get I can read without ever opening them, even on the iphone, because of the preview bit. But you're right, I need to let go a bit of the notion that things should be similar.
