So, apart from someone elsewhere saying they tried one out in a Birmingham store, and some stores saying they are getting them soon, do we have any definite sightings yet?

I would like to try and populate the OP with store locations so people can go and try for themselves.

Yes there is definate sightings in london. The phones 4 u store in bond street that did the launch now have a display model however, you can't check out the camera/video or front camera or music in headphones because of the way they secured the phone.

The three store also down bond street a bit further up (opposite selfriges) had a clean demo yesterday i.e it wasn't bolted to anything so i got to test out camera/video, front camera/video, audio, phone calls in the shop and got to walk around in the shop with the phone to test out the camera on different subjects. I don't know if they would have bolted the phone down now but I am glad I went in search again yesterday as i finally got to play with it without any restrictions as such (apart from obviously not being allowed to go out the shop with it)

Good thread idea! I'm going to go searching Oxford Street sometime next week, I take it it's only the Bond Street stores?
