    Here it is. I can confirm the phone can rest easily on the kickstand with the charging port facing upward!

    What time did you order it? I didn't get my order in until about 11am, so I hope I made the cutoff.

    Also, did you have tracking info for it?

    EXCELLENT!!! and congrats on being the first to get it and post it!!

    But the other big Q that remains on my list is do you need the dock to use webtop or can you use it with just the HDMI cable plugged into the phone?? BIG Q there that everyone is curious about.

    I ordered it at 8am. I never received any tracking info for it from Sprint. And when I checked my status 30 min ago it still was in processing.

    You should call them and offer to give them the tracking info so they can update the site for you. :p

    Godfather13... can you please verify if gtalk has video or not. Reviews are saying no but I am adding this to my curous list. Also the HDMI webtop without the dock is my other Q.

    Thanks

    When I first plugged the phone in the screen flashed the battery charge screen and showed 70% charged. The notification light was lit a yellow/orange color. Its been charging 53 minutes now and the light is green. I still havent turned it on yet. (Im paranoid if I dont let it go 3 hrs Ill have a battery that loses power faster then it should...yes, OCD).

    I read on Android Central that the phone does not come with a microSD card. Is this true? That's a bit of a bummer...it'll be the first Android phone (really any recent Sprint phones) that does not come with a microSD card.

    Correct. There is NO sd card with the phone. It comes with the Li-Ion battery, AC Charger with USB cable, SIM card installed, Get started guide, another booklet for terms/conditions, and a bag for recycling an old phone if you want.

    Moto said that with 16GB internal memory, they did not feel the need to include an SD card.

    you are correct, there is not SD card. The internal memory is at 16gigs and is split up into various places.

    With that can we get someone who boots the phone to give us a screenshot of the memory screen? pretty please :p

    I'd say it's a little lame if you don't!!

    BTW, if you don't, can you at least send it to me? I'm still waiting on mine to get here. :D
