    If you want an X, i sure hope you preordered.

    Those of you with a bad drinc aftertaste, know what im talking about..

    read:

    Could it be another release with limited availablility

    Discuss.

    those of you who have preordered should verify your status with bb. Wouldn't want any unxpected surprises come thursday morning

    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?

    Also for those who may not know what I was referring to in an earlier post...check out this article...http://www.droid-life.com/2010/06/22/verizon-waves-goodbye-to-droid-eris-incredible-next/

    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?

    I wonder what kind of sales Motorola was expecting in their first weekend.

    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.:)

    Newsflash: EVERYTHING comes in limited quantity, unless it comes from Government.

    Shortage? Huntington Beach has 110 of them! I think things look just fine.
