Been too busy setting up and playing all day (and night) to post until now (2:30 a.m.). Called before opening Thursday and three local Costcos gave me different answers about distribution, but one put my name at the top of the list. Bless him! They got 6 and all had been promised when I arrived; during the hour while I waited for Fedex to arrive with them about 4 people asked in person and 10 more called, and they all had to go on the waiting list for the next shipment.
It's great! Attractive--the lip is glossy deep pewter color, feels light, the hump is barely noticeable, and it's fast. Charged it and downloaded about 50 apps in the desk cradle while working this afternoon. Then did nonstop app config at home from about 7 p.m.-1 a.m. before battery dropped to 5%.
The Costco bundle is a real steal. A bonus for this Californian: Costco charged me sales tax only on the 2-year subsidized price, less their $20 instant rebate--$279.99. VZW always charges it on the full retail price, so that saved about another $25.
I fondly kiss my OG Droid goodbye. As others have said, it's been a great little machine, but it just couldn't keep up any more. I look forward to at least dating this one until the Prime comes out, and then I'll decide who to marry. Well, for two years anyway.
