    I was just wondering if the buzz and hype matched the response in initial sales demand,

    I called this morning at 8am and they agreed to hold one for me. I picked it up at 3pm and they told me they were sold out at 10am.

    I stopped at Best Buy tonight and they said they sold out earlier in the day. Who knows how many they had. I played with the display for a while and it does have some good features, but it is a work in progress, IMHO. I think Moto did a good job, but the OS has some noticeable glitches.

    Most people reported that stores got very limited supply. Most verizon stores only got 10 units and best buys only got enough for preorders.

    That was my guess too, not many units at any location.

    soon they will be a dime a dozen ... you may even find them thrown in with a tank fill-up of gas or better a large pizza. :cool:

    I don't feel so old anymore remembering Zoom. I was 5 when it started.

    On the android board, someone posted a code that ordering from Moto website, 200 bucks off. I got one for $651.94, out the door. No contract 3g. A bunch of us got in on that before code stopped working.

    Now the wait.

    By the way, Zoom -- that's bringing back scary memories :p

    No thank goodness! It looks like this "Zoom" thing has me beat by roughly 10 years.

    I do remember this monstrosity though :eek:

    See, I was so excited about the XOOM's release that I wasn't aware of the proper way to spell it's clever name.

    I am certin that there will be throngs of crowds at Verizon stores to snap up supplies. Poor Apple. At least with the focus squarely on Xoom, the congestion at the Apple Store will ease somewhat.

    I think you are referring to the now obsolete iPad1. Do not know why it is obsolete but the price has gone down so bad, even when the new iPad2 is still shackled to iTunes and is limited by it's maker.:p
