If you have questions about the AT&T version post here and I'll try to answer.

First few observations:

Lightning fast, there is no hesitation doing any action. It's a bit surreal coming from a Captivate.

Camera is awesome.

Thin, light, but solid build, looks good and doesn't feel cheap.

You can't turn off LTE. If you go into Settings -> Mobile Network, there is no option for "Preffered Network Mode" like on the Galaxy Nexus or Rogers HTC One X. Really hoping to get this fixed via OTA or custom ROM as there is no LTE anywhere near me.

Stock browser doesn't have a dedicated "tabs" button. You have to press menu to get to your tabs. Kind of annoying, not sure if that is just an HTC thing or if this is the first phone like that. I'm just going to start using Chrome since it has a tabs button.

Sense 4.0 is nice, it's not obtrusive and actually improves on the stock ICS experience instead of replacing it altogether. I love the WebOS style recent apps list. It really looks nice.

I read some people saying they were seeing some yellow wash out on some screens, and I think mine is OK, but certain apps, particularly games do have a yellow tint to them, but stuff like the homescreen and google maps look great. Temple Run has a pretty clear yellow tint to it when compared with a Galaxy Nexus running Temple Run. Not sure what to make of this. Maybe something else that can be fixed in an OTA.

They only had one in the box and I got it. It is a freestanding ATT store in a relatively small town outside Atlanta. The salespeople there are commission based, so he had motivation to sell it to me. First thing I even said to him was "You can't sell it to me today though, can you?" He said he could, so I had him ring it up. I just kept waiting for the bomb to drop that his system wouldn't let him or something.

It was probably what he was supposed to use as a display...lucky dawg! I have already called around to the stores around me and only one said that they had a few but cant sell them until the 6th. The sales guy told me to order it online and that some folks might get them early...the 4th.

Find a commission based salesperson at a po-dunk ATT store that doesn't really pay attention to the ATT corporate materials.

What town in Atlanta? I will cancel my pre-order and drive over there imminently lol.

Although they probably wouldn't sell it to me since I'm buying for full retail and they probably wouldn't really make any money off me that way.

Upon further inspection and comparing my One X with my Captivate, I believe that I do have one of the screens that has the yellow tint to it. Google maps looks fine when viewed on it's own, but when you hold it side by side with another phone you can tell that the colors are a little off. They are nice and bright, but just not the same hue as my captivate. Pulling up the same web pages the difference is pretty clear anywhere there is green or yellow. Blues don't seem to be affected very much if at all.
