I would wait on some full on reviews about the phone before passing judgment, but from your hands on it seems like it might be a decent "Me Too" android phone (aka, an entry level one.. because even if it's only an extra $100 to get the prime lineup, for some people that's too much.)
So on the low end Verizon will have the Ally (Stock android), Devour (MOTOBLUR), and the Droid Eris (Sense, until it is sold out)
Of the three, only Devour is running old software now.
Only downside for reps (IMO) is that It's going to be even harder to position the KIN now I think. That, and hopefully the battery on this one will be secure, unlike the Touch
