Thumbs down No Brick Stores until November for Norcal

Calling around to see if anyone will have it in stock.
Everyone is denying having any until November for Northern California.

The Parrot stores are saying nothing until Novemeber.
The AT&T stores are saying nothing in the store but they can order for me.

Is AT&T gonna make us wait even Longer??????
Starting to smell like it....

Best Buy in Sacramento says they have them now but can only sell them tomorrow. He also said come early.

Would I be able to get this at Best Buy while extending my contract?

I'm good for an upgrade now. Will best buy be able to give me the $200 price tag as an upgrade?

Normally (other) stores say I need to go through AT&T.

Thumbs up Pre-Order for Sunday (Oct.2) Pickup

I can personally confirm that Best Buy is accepting pre-orders for units they have locked up in the store.

I just made a $50 pre-order in Sacramento. Looked like they had 5-6 units on their locked shelf, one of which he scanned for my order.

Not aware of any other stores that will have them for pick-up tomorrow.
Feels like these will be hard to obtain for these early days.

Good luck everyone and happy Adroiding....

What part of Northern California. I'm in Redding and our Best Buy will have them. I pre-ordered mine, but I called to make sure it would be there tomorrow and the guy told me they had 8 in stock in addition to the pre orders.
