    So I've read, in multiple forums, that I should charge the battery for 8hrs before I turn it on for the first time.

    I just read the battery charging portion of the quick start guide that came wiht the Dinc & nothing was mentioned about charging for xHrs before turning on.

    It's been charging for 3hrs now, but the light turned green in less than 90min.

    Anybody have any reason why I shoud not turn on my phone NOW & activate it, so I can start playing with it??

    No you don't need to, you can turn it on and use it while plugged in. It wouldn't hurt to let it charge for 8 hours before you go to bed tonight though.

    Lithium batteries do NOT have memory.

    Here this might help!

    Nope, go for it. 8 hours is a bit excessive considering our battery, even fully drained, wouldn't take that long for a full charge.
