I went into a Radio Shack on Friday (3.9) and tried to pre-order. However, apparently they received a directive the day before that they were stopping pre-orders. (One employee was about to start the pre-order process, but then another employee pulled up their intranet memo with the updated info.)

Did you pre-order in the past few days or last Weds/Thurs?

I went in on Saturday morning after seeing their press release on the front page. Walked in and was told that they had stopped taking pre-orders as stated above, but they took my name and number and said they would call if they got extras in. They also mentioned that they had only taken 4-5 pre-orders and I was the first person on the list. I'm crossing my fingers that I'll get the call, but I'm not keeping my hopes up.
