    I think it's supposed to be around 12:30AM EST when they go on sale.
    I will be on from 12:01AM until 1:00AM EST checking the site...
    That is, if I can't get one at Walmart tonight.

    Almost got it at Walmart tonight. The manager stopped the sale though when he realized it was the Droid. Damn!

    I wonder why VZ online couldn't sell them TODAY to ship for arrival TOMORROW, the release date. It isn't as if we would have had them in our hands prior to the official date. Now, online orderers are at a disadvantage because they won't receive theirs (mine) until Saturday or Monday. Doesn't seem fair...

    You get instant rebate so you can't cry. That is their thinking. If youw ant it right away, go to the store.

    Marketing... It's about the lines and hype. It's not about the few who really want the device. It's about the masses knowing the device exists and desired by people like us. It's why stores were given marching orders not to sell early or tell people how many are available. If you know there are hundreds then why show up early in line?

    It's all marketing. Fortunately for us the hype isn't there. The iphone had hype from the today show to CNBC. I haven't heard a thing from the "mainstream". Good for us but I'm sure it's irking the Moto and Verizon execs. to no end.
