Default M8 Google Play Edition Order Status

For those of you who ordered a GPE M8, when is it's estimated shipping date? Google says by April 15th, but that "by" makes me hope they could ship sooner.

Cool! How do you like it? Also, if you've had a Nexus 5, what do you think in contrast to that?

I love it. They kept the screen tap wake feature. I did have the nexus 5 and the M7. This phone is like they knocked boots. Totally worth it to me.

Damn. If it has the tap to wake feature, I'm seriously considering changing my N5 order to the M8. That and the lack of wireless charging we're pretty much the only things holding me back.

Yeah, it definitely didn't wirelessly charge but here's a screenshot of the gesture controls setting menu. And the boom sound on/off in sound settings.

Awesome! Was it hard to lock it though? I'd expect it to still be difficult to lock with the button on the top. Also, when did you order it? Were you one of the first?

What about the camera app? Could you post some screenshots? Is the same awful camera app from all nexus devices? :'(
