The store in Jacksonville NC has 60 on the shelf, three of which have my name on them. Didnt bother with any pre-order just went in and made human contact with a salesman who is commission driven. I also have a 9am appointment with him on the 15th!

I'm not sure I believe a NATIONWIDE shortage of devices at launch from two screens.

To be frank, Droid-Life likes to operate on a lot of vague assumptions, rumors, and tips. I still remember the article they posted where the author truly believed rumors that Verizon was going to phase out the Incredible to make room for the Droid X...

I have no idea what things will look like nationwide, but I know the store closest to me is only getting 10 in stock. I've got my name on their "list," so hopefully that will guarantee me one even though I can't get there until after work that day.

That doesn't really surprise me. I asked the folks at the VZW kiosk at BJs about stock levels. She said that she didn't know how many they were getting, but for the Incredible launch, they got 3. If they only get 5 this time, that still shows that stock levels are not going to be as bad as the Incredible launch.

But to skew suggested stock by posting two photos of stock from a kiosk and corporate store? Come on, how much more vague can one be?

would it be better to try to order through verizonwireless.com early on the 15th or call an order in or go to a local store? Im a big fan of ordering online or over the phone because of the instant rebate. I canceled my dinc order because of wait time and if I end up waiting again Im going to switch to att.

Good news is that many people arent eligible for upgrades. I doubt the majority are going to pay full retail, I could be wrong though, as the DINC was a horrible phone IMHO.

You know why there will be limited supply? So it guarantees a sell out. The same reason you wait 20 minutes in line to get into an empty club.

Preordered from Best Buy....only way to go these days. And I think VZW is just pushing hype...I can't imagine why this phone would be in short supply...its doesnt have an Amoled screen, and its made by MOTO...who is a way bigger company then HTC is. There should be absolutely no excuse as to why the X should not be available for the masses.

I just got off the phone with the Best Buy where I ordered my 2 Droid X's (Burlington, WA) and they said that they will definitely have enough to cover their pre orders. He didn't know how many more they would have until Wednesday, but they have been guaranteed at least enough for everyone that already pre ordered.

I don't think they'll have shortages, I mean they're trying to compete with the iPhone release. why have a small stock?

From all the buzz the X should do quite well. I'm going to try to be at Verizon really early on
the 15th. I'll be pushing, fighting and possibly stampeding to get the X so stay out of my way. J/K.

oh well, for what it's worth, the guy at the verizon store said he'd hold one for me until 7 pm on thursday. So apparently (hopefully) I don't have to worry.

anyways im in new york city and i just spoke to my best buy guy.

after joking around with him i eased him into telling me that the reason best buy stopped taking preorders the first time was because they knew for a fact that there would be a shortage after receiving a memo on it. He couldnt explain why bb started a second round of preorders though, he states that most bb's are getting between 10-20 units. So basically those of you who preordered the first time bb held the option, ARE pretty much guaranteed a phone.

hope that helps, and provides comfort to those who feel the drinc s#it is happening again with the X

Unknown, but I'm sure they will have them shortly after. Motorola isn't going to have stock issues. And I imagine Amazon.com will have them up for order on the 15th. So like I said, if it takes an extra week, that's cool with me.

I can't justify Moto or Verizon intentionally causing a "shortage" to make it seem like they sold out...Wouldn't they benefit more from HUGE sales numbers? Therefore, if there IS a shortage, I think it'd be a legitimate one, not some sort of conspiracy...

...but there won't be a shortage...

Yeah but the amoled shortage makes sense (especially given samsungs new phone coming out)

Intentionally sabotaging your first release weekend when you have products available, just to stimulate demand and cause a media frenzy...just sounds like bad business...

If I were Verizon I would make sure there are enough to go around. With the Iphone4 picking up in shipments and the Evo4G out there, Id want to make sure anyone who wanted one would get one to ensure they stay with Verizon. Thats one reason Im going DX, I dont want to wait for the Iphone4 any longer or wait for them to "fix" it.

hmmm
ok
i can agree with that .

but thats like me saying apple sabotaged the itouch4 so early adopters would buy the bumper guards.....or even for apple to release a itouch4gs(which now makes calls) this year, and promote it as the best thing since blueberry pancakes.

Do you see what i mean by it sounds funny?

..........then microsoft comes to mind and i start to believe both your and my opinion o.O.

Shady business........hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

i can agree with that .

but thats like me saying apple sabotaged the itouch4 so early adopters would buy the bumper guards.....or even for apple to release a itouch4gs(which now makes calls) this year, and promote it as the best thing since blueberry pancakes.

Do you see what i mean by it sounds funny?

..........then microsoft comes to mind and i start to believe both your and my opinion o.O.

Shady business........hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if Apple screwed up to sell bumper guards haha...

I am in a similar boat. I talked to a guy at the verizon store here over the phone, and he told me as I will be a new customer, I need to get a credit check down. I drove down there today, he let me play with it for like 30 minutes. I had a lot of fun on the phone.

I actually have a 5 PM appointment, and he is going to lock the ESN for me until I get there . YAY FOR VZW.

in a normal, honest world. i would say youre full of it. Sadly our world is none of the above.

that is 30 million dollars we are talking about( im not using 1.7 million or whatever the exact sales are).

30 million+
on top of the itouch4 sales.

Agreed. This whole "let's launch knowing there will be a shortage so we can create hype" is bound to piss customers off and go to other carriers. I know I'll be pissed if I can't get one!!

True but the media backlash over the antenna issue isnt worth a few bumpers. Not to mention that they were planning to give them out for free. Apple rushed the Iphone4 and is now dealing with the backlash. I cant wait to see another platform take over the market.

No offense to any of the lucky people, but I am so tired of reading about people able to make appointments and preordering through verizon stores. None of them around me are doing any such things. I do not live in no where land either. Can't wait for this to release so I can find out whether I will get one or have some more damn waiting to do. It's annoying because we should all have an equal chance at getting one on opening day, and that's just not the case.

dont be upset. All of the 8 vzw stores near me denied me a preorder even til TODAY!!

good thing i went with best buy 2 weeks ago. Usually I try several sources, fortunately i was able to hit best buy early.
