    I stopped into a Verizon "premium retail' store to see if they would have the Bionic tomorrow. The manager said UPS just dropped off several and he could sell it today. He confirmed with somebody and I have had it working for about 2 hours now.

    Obviously much faster than my worn out original Droid. I live just outside a 4G area so I haven't tested it yet. It is taking some time to figure out which apps I want to download again. It is being recharged now as the battery was low to start.

    I am the first kid on my block to have one!!

    Just thought I'd give you a heads up . . . .

    Cool beans, I'm going to my local in a bit to see if they"ll set me play with the demo so I can see the screen and such, hopefully they will. What are your thoughts on it? Clear or grainy?

    Display is very clear - but I haven't played with it enough to check much video . . . .

    Now Truss, you have to milk these things for information before you go snickering or you'll blow all the fun...:p

    Your the first one to get my name right on here, or anywhere... usually I get Trusst, Trust, Trussto, or Topher... anyway, back on topic.

    I hope OP realizes that I am just giving him crap because I'm jealous he has a new cool phone and I still have a Droid 1. Congrats on being the first man!

    He went to an indirect reseller.
    Not uncommon at all for those stores to sell stock when they get it in rather than waiting until the "official" release date.

    Yeah, hold that beast up next to your computer screen, with DroidForums in the background, then I'll buy your story.
