    The RS manager let me hold MY EVO!! And how do I know it is mine, you ask? Because they put everybody's name on the package! She let me power that bad boy up and HOLY CRAP - it turned on in seconds.

    I immediately noticed that it was a lot bigger in person - definitely much bigger then my Hero. Pictures didn't do it justice. I'm not sure it would be comfortable in anybody's pocket. That's just me.

    The colors on the screen almost jumped out at me .... I was very impressed.

    I asked if I could take a pic of it, but she said I couldn't as I would get her into trouble. However, I did take a snapshot of the generic screen protector RS will be offering for $8 on Friday. I don't know how to upload a pic, but it is the WrightRight Universal Screen Protectors http://www.wirefly.com/images/accessories/small/bgwrite2-150-1.jpg that you have to cut yourself. I don't like that idea, so I am screen protector shopping at the moment.

    My extended battery did NOT look like it would fit in at all (not talking about the cover) which kind of sucked.

    She also told me that RS will be offering insurance too. Definitely a thought.

    I will go back later tonite to talk to the other manager and see if I can take some pics ... OMG, I can't wait!

    I think I either need a cigarette or a nap. Maybe both! :D

    Seems silly they have the phones ready to go with your names and everything on them yet they cannot actually sell it to you for 2 more days.

    That is the only one she knew about and had in stock. I asked her if there were more, and she said "I doubt it."

    It's funny, because she said nothing about cases, neither. I will see if I can get more info later tonite!

    OK...so I am pretty excited about the new phone...but you want to go back and TAKE PICTURES? Seriously? You do know that you will HAVE it in less than 48 hours, right? Just seems a *little* crazy to me...

    My RadioShack rep showed me the release day accessories list and it had a Zagg InvisibleShield (screen protector only, not full body) on it for $14.99 but no cases/covers.

    I asked her about it, but she said that since it is all computerized, it won't allow her to sell them before 6am on Friday. Not sure it's right, but I wouldn't want someone to lose their job over it neither.

    Just got to so the same for the last hour playing with it at a RadioShack. Typing on the key board was no perfect, as it was my first touch screen, but the Google text to speech key was a blast. Plus I love Layar, that impressed me quite a bit. Sprint Navigation crashed on me once while I while I was going to speak an a city in to the phone for directions. It fit in my pocket just fine, in regular jeans. I was fast! The camera was slower after I touched a focus point, but once I took off the plastic tab that was on the EVO (it must have been pretty new) it took photo instantly.Still concerned about battery life as most people are. but it live wallpapers as better in person.


    Using footprint, I received a message that it could not record the GPS location inside, I just touched 'ok' and it still found the place. So I am not sure if that is some generic message.

    Edit:

    Keyboard as someone mention while typing you cannot hold shift and type a letter. But when you do hold shift down it just turns caps lock on.

    I dont know if i would want to buy Radio Shack Insurance. That chain of stores seem like every month they are closing more locations.

    They have turned into a cell phone dealer.

    Reminds me of an auto warranty a friend of mine purchased. About 6 months later the company was no longer in business. haha sucks.

    We're going cold turkey until Friday AM, I want to be super surprised when I get that badboy - The hype is truly amazing even without much advertisment, being a teacher all the students know about it already, most know more about the next gen iphone being in an apple run school but still pretty neat!

    The Evo really is amazing, you will all be very happy with it.

    Format your SD card as soon as you get it (if you are using the card that ships with it)

    They cannot sell you the phones early, as they do not have all the ESNs turned on in the system. Even the I/O phones cannot be activated on a personal account until 6/4.

    Amazing phone, and I'm excited too....but you're making it seem like you're adopting a new child. Get some fresh air and relax. We're all getting it soon. This isn't for Facebook status type posts. Appreciate the enthusiasm though mah man

    If I were the OP I would have super sexed up the woman at the RS, dinner and a new puppy, all in hopes of getting my EVO sooner.

    I'm a school teacher and coach, so no matter what I do, I tend to take it over the top. But it's all good and I can certainly take the criticism (albeit negative or positive.) What ever it is, it just makes me a better person from learning. It's all good.
