    Finding lots of articles, but nothing official. Will this offer be available when we go to the VZW store tomorrow to pick our phone up?

    Do a Google search and you can probably find these cards for less money from other vendors.

    As per the other thread that was very similar (was advertising this deal). The cheap 32gig cards on ebay are NOT really 32gig cards. This is probably one of the better prices on getting a good 32gig micro sd card.

    I bet they can be had cheaper too. They are going after people caught up in the "hype" Still not a bad deal though I guess.

    What's the speed of these cards - 2?

    I'll be happy with the 16gb provided. I'm a tad tight in my 8gb card that I use in my Nexus, so 16gb will be more then enough. I do not feel like dropping another c-note just for storage, I'll not use.

    Can you put apps on the microsd or only on 8gig internal?

    My music collection is 140GB, not including music videos. As for my movie collection.. people call my collection a personal "Blockbuster".

    Do I need all of that on there? Of course not. But I can definitely easily fill a 32GB iPhone and still be looking for space with what I listen to and watch frequently. My ideal device would be 256GB+. One can dream. :)

    From my browsing, I think 2.1 is internal only but Froyo allows external? What I read could be completely wrong, so don't quote me on it.

    Darn :-( too bad I'm not going to get an X. That's a pretty good deal I'd say.

    Hopefully appropriate place to post, but I just spoke with a rep from the Verizon Kiosk in my local BJ's (a Price Club type store) here in Maryland. They are giving a $50 gift card with all purchases of any Droid phone.

    So $300-rebate, plus $50. Rep also said that if they run out they are still taking orders and then shipping two-day Fed-Ex. Not a bad deal at all.

    Is anyone other than SanDisk even making legit 32gig cards yet?

    Also does anyone know what class the 16gig card in the phone is?
