I've never had a problem getting an "it" device on Day 1 here in SoCal. The worst case scenario is that I have to jump on search.twitter.com to see where people are getting theirs and call a few stores to confirm availability. I don't see the point of preordering if you live in a major metro.

Seems silly to risk waiting until the second shipment comes in to try getting one if you really want it.

I'm pre-ordering through RS or BB but probably won't pick it up there as there is a Sprint store right downtown KC where I can walk to Friday AM...the pre-order at those other stores is just a safety net in case for some reason the Sprint Studio store runs out...which I'm doubting.

I'm not eligible for an upgrade as I got my Pre in October, but I'll be down at the Sprint store first thing in the morning to pick one up. It may be a lot of money to drop on a phone (out of contract), but I also have a USB card for my laptop. If the hotspot works as advertised, I can drop the USB card and still come out ahead (despite the extra charges attached to the EVO).

Well.. I have been asking Sprint at stores, in Premier forum, direct to VP if they will give me a wink indicating that there will be a Premier Pre-Sale like on the Pre. Nothing.
The Sprint store will not take a pre order. (but local Sprint corp. store said they were expecting to get 100's).
So finally, I thought I would follow advice of a claimed BB Mobile manager on these boards , and ask local BB mobile to match the RS deal. They looked at the printout and said...."oh...well maybe. You would have to come back when our manager is here....and lets see, manager won't be in until Thursday sometime....so you could drive back to the mall then." I indicated it might be easier to just go to the Shack 4 doors down in the mall. "Yeah...I guess you might be right". Geez.
