Well I waited in front of the store (I was the first one there and got there at 4am) and I have to say it was well worth the wait. As soon as I powered it up it did an OTA update to correct the storage card issue. I have loaded about 20 apps and I still have 360 MB free internal storage. No lag, It responds perfectly to gestures. Very fluid. i can't put it down. I am going to test everything out on it and post my thoughts. So far it has delivered as promised and then some.
