Interesting. Is it less slippery because it is sticky/rubbery, or 
because it is rough? How does it feel with a stylus?

It may not be directly comparable but the Psion 5 had a finish very 
similar to that on the Freerunner. It was good for a while (~3 years for 
me) but eventually started to peel around the corners. The later 5mx had 
a paint finish instead. The Freerunner may do better as the corners 
aren't covered in the rubbery stuff. If it does start peeling like the 
Psion you will be able st scrape it off and have a black plastic finish
