Yes, picked it up locally last Saturday (Sams Club). I could have had all 5 if I liked since I was the first.

Still no shipping confirmation on my 6/28 order so I cancelled it (I think, no confirmation yet) on Monday. If it ships I suspect they'll say to refuse it, but I'd ask if anyone at work wants it first.

It's very fast and gpu benchmarks very high. Only one app incompatible so far and I know the guy who wrote it. No sdcard slot you you'd want the 16 gb version. I bet the next revision includes a 32 gb version.

It has a gps but you'd have to cache map data for your location in advance (or tether it) or install a map app since the gps just gives your location. Usually a Internet connection is used to show the area around you.

Battery life is great. I took it to work yesterday and it was powered on for 12 hours and people played games on it for 20 minutes. Battery was still at 92% after 12 hours. I DID have wifi turned off during that time tho.
