This is no different than a number of other people's beefs but thought I would post it here anyway.
I watched the Google I/O presentation which ended around noon. As a Canadian, I wasn't even sure if I would be able to order or if I would have to wait since the Play app in Canada doesn't have a section for devices. I too was under the impression that Play was the only place to order one. On my lunch break, I found a link to the Play site where I could order and jumped on it. After getting some errors, my order finally went through. So....
1) I'm fine if my "pre-order" doesn't show up until late next week
2) I'm NOT fine that Google didn't tell us that Play wasn't the only source
3) I'm NOT fine with paying $20 for 2-day shipping when I could have saved my $ and bought from another vendor with free shipping
4) I'm also NOT fine with being locked in and unable to cancel (I called them to cancel on Monday)
So, I will wait patiently for my order BUT I won't be jumping to order from Play anytime soon unless I am 100% positive that its the only way.
