We all probably saw this one coming. Droid X inventories are running low, and in many cases, stores are selling out. Although the sheer amount of Droid X devices available today were far greater than that original 25,000 figure, there have been numerous reports of Verizon Stores already selling out of the Droid X; some Best Buy stores could not even cover all their pre-orders, according to sources.
As a case study, I contacted three local Verizon stores at 2PM (in Staten Island, NY); two were running low, and one had already sold out at that point. One store told me that they may be receiving another shipment "later today", and that I should try back tomorrow. The local Best Buy also had none left, but would not comment if it was able to cover its pre-orders. The bad news, many people were denied the chance to obtain a Droid X on launch day. On the other hand, the good news is that the demand for the new Moto device was extremely high, and that we may see more Droid X shipments as early as tomorrow.
Furthermore, according to BGR, there have been multiple reports of the Droid X having activation issues; that only voice was activating, leaving new customers without a 3G data connection. According to Verizon, the activation servers had become overloaded, and that there was a 2-hour backlog for data activations. Let's take Big Red at its word here.
So, did anyone else leave a Verizon store empty-handed? And did anybody with a Best Buy pre-order get denied? Let us know!
