best buy had a dummy out for the droid, not the HTC. but when i posted yesterday from a droid, that was at a verizon store. BUT it wasn't a demo model.. the guy pulled it out from under the counter when i mentioned i was getting one friday.
The store by me (Laguna Niguel, CA) had 2 demo models out on a table early last week so I was able to feel the weight, how the slider works, and so on. It does have some funky angles on it but I could care less, I'm more concerned with how the phone works as opposed to what it looks like.
Asheville NC Best Buy had a couple demo (non functional) units that gave me a good idea of how the phone felt, how the slider felt, and how the keyboard felt (not as bad as some reviews said in my opinion)
mchoffa, I agree about the keyboard. I got to play with one last night, and I could type very quickly on it. I didn't think it was bad at all, and definitely way better than trying to type on the BB Pearl that I have now. I can't wait for Friday.
Most of the stores I went to had nothing and all the CSRs just smiled at me and told me it comes out on Friday. Only one had a Droid and the manager gave me and 9 other people a strictly hands off demo on it. I am looking forward to this weekend, just so I can play with one a little. Sadly, I can't actually get one for a little while.:icon_ cry:
