    It hasn't been a week yet but how many have you seen? None for me, BUT when I got mine at Best Buy Mobile there were 3 other people ahead of me who were also getting one. All at the same time.

    Everyone has been asking me what it is and who's the carrier. About half of them are ready to dump AT&T after my demo. :)

    For only being out now for a week, I have seen a surprising number of Droids out in the wild. And I see my wife using her's every day.

    The morning after I brought mine to work, 2 others ran out and got theirs. One had just gotten the Touch Pro 2. He spent 15 minutes comparing my Droid with his TP2, called Verizon and made the exchange.

    Seen a few; had one person stop me in the Seattle airport and ask me a few questions about his Droid when he saw that I was using one too. He'd been trying to download ringtones from one of those ringtone sites and I showed him how to use any MP3 without having to go through a ringtone site. He seemed very impressed that he could do that.

    I haven't seen any although I'm not out much during the week. Last weekend I had my out everywhere I went but didn't see anyone with theirs. Maybe today or tomorrow I'll see some.

    Every day I am surrounded by iBricks and Crackberries, The only people I have actually seen holding a Droid (outside of people at the Verizon displays) were the people on either side of me when I was buying mine.

    Also, never underestimate the destructive power of one dumb person when given access to a computer. Seriously, they will find a way to make it do the impossible shortly before it explodes/bursts into flames.

    it just proves that the droid has an appeal to more mature markets as well.

    now that i think about it, i've been walking around manhattan every day since this phone came out...the only one i've seen is my own >.>

    usually people here all have the newest phones/technological stuff the first day it comes out too...
