    This is in a suburb of Baltimore. I thought I would be first or second so learn from my mistake and get there early.

    It actually worked out okay for me.

    By the time they started letting people in, there were close to 20 in line. By the time I left with my phone it was closer to 30-35 people inside the store.

    They had a guy come out and say they had plenty for everyone (so at least 20) but I couldn't get any specifics on how many even when I was checking out. I did see the employee helping me open up a box that contained 8 or 10, but I have no clue how many of those boxes they had. 2 people in front of me ended up not being there to buy phones, just went to accompany their friends. They had 6 registers open so I was the last person to be first at a register. I was out of the store by 9:10 and I was done at the same time as the first 5 who had been there for a while.

    When I left though, it was 5-6 people per line at each of the registers (30-35 total). If you don't want to be in that store forever, then get there early.

    1st in line at Best Buy mobile. In and out by 9:15am. Playing with it now. Beautiful thing! Worth the wait. Especially coming from an OG Droid.

    I ended up there about 30 minutes early as I had a final at 8am and finished in a little over an hour and the store is about 10 minutes from where I go to school. I think I was the first one there, but I waited in my car until I saw another person get in line. Ended up being three of us total and we just chatted for a bit until they opened up! Had no issues at all exchanging for the Nexus! Completely forgot they were even releasing a white razr today and they didn't even try to mention it!
