    I got mine for $199 also. I'm sending back my OG Droid and I am getting a $100 Verizon Gift Card with the Verizon Trade-in program. I ordered earlier today around 2:30am and I was wondering does anyone think it would come today or Friday?

    David-that Amazon page lists it as a Tegra2 processor, did I miss something, I've brehm under the impression it had an OMAP?

    It does have an OMAP. It looks like they mixed the description of the old Etna Bionic with that of the Targa Bionic. I mean why else would they still have a picture of the scrapped Etna Bionic on that page with the new Targa Bionic pictures mixed in.

    Its a typo. That was slated to be the original processor. It is now a TI OMAP dual core.

    I wonder if I can apply my company discount on Amazon... 249 +
    Company discount would kick ass.

    The 100. only applies to basic phones. Blackberrys and Smartphones do not apply. I tried already with 3 different reps.
