I went to a VZW store last night in northern virginia to play around with the DX. I asked one of the salesmen if he had heard of or had any news regarding the Fascinate. He said they had received a very large shipment yesterday. I asked if I could put my name down for pre-order and he said they do not take preorders, but that I could schedule an appointment the day of the release. He also said not to worry because the shipment was large enough that they will not run out "since there isn't much buzz about this phone". Also, he said the release date is the 9th and not the 8th. The 8th must be for online orders arriving on the 9th? Either way, I can't wait!
