    $99 seems like a good deal, no?

    What phones are most ppl coming from?

    Edit: I just noticed they are also giving $10 of app store credit with these, so it ends up being $89.

    Yes, then a person can buy two and have about 500mb of app storage. Rimshot!

    Sorry for the joke, but even the sales folks in the store were dumbfounded by the low storage. Rooters only, need apply for the US version of the Play.

    Isn't that the reason people 'in the know' buy Android?
    For everyone else there's iPhone, yes?

    I'm on a family plan so it listed my upgrade price as $149. It shows as backordered though - shipping estimate is 8-9 days.

    People here get that, but most not even get it and then get smacked with the reality after the 14 days. The US version should not have been bloated, since not enough space for it. 226mb range is pure nuts and shows VZW marketing are operating with horse blinds not seeing this.

    I'm not understanding...the internal memory is low but you can do Apps2Sd right
    so what is the big deal?

    Regardless....I will be switching from a Droid Charge(probably)

    But on a different note, watched Chris Video of it and the phone looks so tiny compared to other 4 inch phones i've used(Xperia X10, Samsung Captivate and Vibrant)

    It's not 4inches, it's 7 ;-) :)

    Yes realize that but as I said, based on the videos I looked smaller than other 4 inchers i have owned...

    Even smaller than the Xperia X10(it's distant cousin)

    Apps2sd does not put all of the app in the sd card. All apps leave a core for security and app design reasons. The amount can range from a few hundred KB to 30mb. Games and media apps tend to be heavier, but not always.

    DeadlyD can give you insight, since has been dealing and managing it on his Play. Catch is you need mess with ADB or be able to root and use Titanium to make some more space.

    Just the deal i want. although it is $149 for upgrades.
    so it's the same price as wirefly.com.

    for me, i dont think the memory issue will be a big deal

    i only have whatever Verizon installed on my charge

    Managing space isn't so great a deal.

    Root with Gingerbreak, use Root Uninstaller (free market app) to get rid of whatever bloat you don't want (good safe removal thread over at XDA), then just connect up & adb setinstalllocation2.

    Job's a good 'un.
