Will Verizon stores get demo Xs anytime soon so we can try it out early?

    I don't usually follow phone releases early like this, but when does Verizon usually get demo versions of a well-known, flagship phone like this?

    Is there a chance it will be in stores to try out before release? Or is it usually on or right near the release date?

    Sorry if this was asked already, didn't see it anywhere!

    The Droid didnt go out until release day. I would assume most phones are like that.

    Waaa that blows. You'd think they'd want us to see for ourselves how it is first and probably win over more potential buyers. Oh well.

    Why would a store want to display a phone they cannot sell yet? It would just cause confusion. Besides, they want you to buy a phone and service when you are there. They don't want to give you a reason to have to walk out of the store and wait another 15 days before buying something. You could potentially end up looking at other phones/carriers and they would loose the sale. Even if someone bought another phone today and learned about the Droid X after it was released, they could swap phones during the 30 day window.

    So I cannot imagine a scenero where a store would display the Droid X prior to launch date. It just doesn't make good business sense.

    Our stores can't get them because, just like preorders and online orders, we don't get our shipments until the release day =[
    Trust me, I wish I could get my hands on that beast!
    My store is excepting $100 deposits, I'm in Peru, IL if anyone wants to preorder. Trust me its wayyy better to buy from a store then online anyways, we do Warrenty swaps, and 30 days in store swaps.
    Email me if ya have any questions.

    I talked to one of the guys at my local verizon store and he didn't have an exact date but he said that they will have a demo available a few days early so that people could check out the phone. I only asked because I wanted to compare the X to the incredible hands on. I have a feeling X will win my vote, but still want to be able to mess around with each one and see what one I like better.


    So no exact date.. but confirmed it will be a few days early for the store near me.

    Stores will probably have them in a few days prior to launch but most stores will keep it in the back until launch day so I wouldn't get any hopes up of demoing it early.
    I will say that hands on the phone is absolutely amazing! You will be impressed...
