    CA's 9.25% tax is KILLER... Goodness gracious and it's still not enough... so our state has to release roughly 31,000 inmates onto the streets by 2011... Ugh... I'm going to get jacked/killed if I show off my Droid in two years.

    $34 tax on the phone and the car cradle. Grand total was $364 out the door. I thought it was kind of high at the time, but I had other priorities than investigating at that point. :D

    Yup around $55 here in SoCal, and free overnight shipping which will be here on Monday :mad:.......Oh well, Sucks they always tax the Full retail price of the phone, and not what it actually sells for.
