    Can't to give my damn BB curve to the wife and start playing with my EVO :D
    I "pre-orederd" it from Best buy on Tuesday, they didnt give me an exact date but said I should have it in about a week. I've been sick of my blackberry for a long time and can't wait for this phone to show up.

    Quick question, why is it called a "pre order" with best buy if the phones are already out? I'm guessing it's a way for them to controll inventory or something?

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    I think the reason why, in this instance, Best Buy does a pre-order on a phone already out is because the carrier tells them when they can start selling the phone. The carrier would be nuts to give their partners the phone on day one since it dilutes their sales (higher profits on phones sold through their sales channels as opposed to phones sold through partners who also want a piece of the profit).
