    So, I talked to my local corporate store this morning. I was told that they are opening at 8 am (an hour earlier than normal for Droid X customers only). She advised me to get there around 7:30 am to ensure a place in line but I'll probably get there at 7 am or a little earlier to be on the safe side. The lady said they only had 60 in stock but would be taking orders when they ran out. Those who have to order will hopefully have their phones by Saturday.

    I'm not normally one to go gaga over new phone or any other electronic device for that matter but I was really duped into buying my blackberry and it hasn't lived up to a single expectation I had for it (always freezing, slow, dropping calls, constant battery pulls, general annoyance). I've never had an Android phone before and my blackberry was my first smartphone so I'm super excited. It will also be my first all-touch phone. I know its going to have a learning curve but hopefully it'll be exactly what I need.

    So, is anyone else lining up early tomorrow to get their X? Hehe.

    My store opens at normal time as far as i know (going to call today and make sure that is still their plan). Will probably show up about 30 minutes before they open.

    I am #6 on the list for the DX tomorrow. I had a BB storm for the last year and can't stand it. Even with the upgraded software, it hangs and batt pulls were constant.

    When I get the droid x, the storm goes in the drink. I'll video it using the droid and replay it for hours of uninterrupted enjoyment.

    lol, you'd think the way you guys talk that this is as big as the iPhone. I've heard both that it will be very available and also that there may be shortages. I think that they will have plenty on hand.

    Yeah I can't wait till tomorrow. Just a few years back, you'd never see me even remotely excited about a phone. I had a flip phone and palm pda back then, lol.

    I'm going to wait 18 months 'till my current contract expires, then buy whatever is the best model at that time.
