Anybody else here remember the big ole pre-release Incredible thread? This gives me that same kinda feel. FWIW...when I went into the Downtown Verizon in Denver on Monday...they had already been through the training on the Note 2. That it would be in store on the 29th. There was some mention in the meeting of the 23rd....perhaps that is when they get the shipment in. The salesperson said they expect to have plenty of each color...that is all.
