    Hey there.

    How about we get some launch day event talk going. I live in the NYC area, and if the rumors about a BestBuy launch on 6 June are correct, then I'll be there on that day.

    It'd be cool if we could all get together -- for a beer, to wait in line together, check out the phones, to upload pics, to support AndroidForums.com and Phandroid.

    What does everyone think about that?

    Let's make this thing concrete.

    Date: 6 June / 13 June (Determined by Official Release) (Perhaps confirmed here)

    Location: http://stores.bestbuy.com/482/
    Best Buy Store
    23rd Street and 6th Avenue

    Time: 10am (breakfast); 11am (store opening)

    Attendees:

    UPDATE: I pre-ordered at the Radio Shack here: http://is.gd/cnord

    I think the Apple Phanatics already stole your idea. Just check out any new Apple product release. :p

    That's what I'm saying! I think we need to get this thread going. If BestBuy does have a 6 June pre-release, then I think forum members will be spending their Sunday afternoon in line.

    So how about esone1ll? I'ts not my thread so I won't hijack it but set the time, date & place on this post and make a list see who'll show up. Even if it's just 5 or 6 of us could be fun. I'll be the first to sign up.

    Will do! I wonder if the launch will be remotely similar to an iPhone launch. I expect not, but a guy can hope, can't I?

    Out of curiosity, what kind of work do you New Yorkers do that a) allows you to afford living there and b) allows you to browse tech forums all day like me :)

    I've posted this in other threads, but Best Buy has not received any information on the EVO. If they have, they haven't released it to anyone at store level. There hasn't been any mention of the EVO in our employee news AT ALL. Information about the Incredible only showed up at the beginning of last week. Any rumors of an early release at this point are just that, rumors. Believe me, I will be posting any info about BB as soon as I get some.

    Mansfield, Tx here so Southlake and Flower Mound are not too far.

    And I only wish I was about to get out of a semester of college in a few weeks. I teach High School and still have a full month plus a few days! And Taks tests all week this week. You guys can relate to the fun in that!

    Dunno, man...I looked around a year ago and rents on tiny apartments were still $2500+. Not sure how much that has changed but doing the math, my girlfriend and I would need to make a good deal more than we make now in order to keep any kind of similar standard of living. Anyway it was just curiosity. I know people who think I'm nuts to pay $1500/month to rent a townhouse in Baltimore when the burbs have houses for less, etc. It's all a matter of where you work and the amenities IMO. proximity to things and bonuses like Wimax make it worth the extra couple hundred a month.

    $2500 for tiny studios is for Manhattan, only one of our five boroughs. Queens and Brooklyn are much, much cheaper. Astoria, one of my favorite neighborhoods in Queens:

    new york all no fee apts classifieds "astoria" - craigslist

    If you pay $1500 now, you'll be right at home there.

    Now, back on topic...
