    Got mine! I was 4th in line (Sprint store) when they opened the doors this morning but the first one who wanted the GS2. One more behind me that I overheard. Not too busy. Didn't ask how many they got in. Now to spend the next few weeks learning everything it can do!

    Where did you get the MHL adapter cable and extra HDMI cable?
    Monoprice.com!

    I just love the place for cables and accessories. Quality of their stuff is excellent and you can't beat the prices. Their MHL adaptor is $14.

    MHL Adaptor:

    For only $11.90 each when QTY 50+ purchased - Micro USB to HDMI MHL Adapter - Black | MHL Adapters

    I also opted for a 6ft 28AWG HDMI cable instead of the recommended 24AWG, since I prefer a thinner more flexible cable for this hookup. 28AWG at 6ft is perfectly fine in my opinion. $3.50 for the cable.

    For only $2.99 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 6ft 28AWG High Speed HDMI Cable w/Ferrite Cores - Black | 28AWG HDMI High Speed Certified Male to Male Cables

    Samsung sent me an email today, allowing me to buy the Epic 4G Touch online for only $99.99
    It's on backorder, and I should receive it next week.

    Picked mine as soon as store opened, no pre-order, they hadn't put any out for display yet.

    Already happy after coming from Epic 4g, miss the keyboard, but thats it. Still playing with it, but so its awesome.

    Picked up mine about 3 hours ago from the Sprint store. The display model was out, but apparently, I was the first one to ask for the Epic Touch, which I found mildly shocking. Then again, with the hype going around with that-phone-I-won't-mention, I'm not entirely surprised, either!

    After wheedling and deedling with my 1st-day Pre for almost the last 2 years, this phone is a breath of fresh air! Fast, light, and quite perky. Sadly, I do miss WebOS, as I find myself trying to do things as I did with my Pre, but I imagine there's an adjustment period. Quite happy!

    I loves me my Epic 4g Touch!!

    Everybody should check out the weather app I have on my phone. The battery drain is miniscule.
    It's in the Amazon Store and the Market. Just search "Elecont"

    Here are my home screens.

    I got mines today around 1030am. Went to a radioshack in a mall, they didn't have any. The lady even tried to tell me that they probably wouldn't sell any till next week, go figure. Best buy was across the street so I checked there, they didn't have any either. So now I was getting a bit upset because I wanted to get the phone in the AM and put it through it's paces this afternoon when I get off work. I decided to stop at the radioshack closer to my job, and got one.

    The reason I went to radioshack was because I had two 25.00 gift cards for helping someone at my job with their computer and I wanted to use them. I can't keep my hands off the dang phone.
    Anyone know if apps2SD will read my memory card and let me transfer my apps that way ?? Oh and for anyone wondering, you can uninstall bloatware and you get almost 2.0GB's of app install space.

    I picked up mine over lunch. The last one in my local Sprint store.
    I'm coming from webOS, so I'm struggling with abandonment issues (HP abandoning me, not me - them) and the relative complexity of configuration of the device. I know complexity really means customization, but until I get to tinker with Android, it's going to be a little intimidating. I mean, who knew there were customizable power savings options?

    My first love is still webOS, but this pretty girl has certainly turned my head around.

    Went to the Sprint store nearest to my house, they hadn't gotten theirs yet. Went to the repair center a little further away and walked out in 10 minutes or so. Very happy so far, all my coworkers are jealous, especially the EVO users :X

    You're gonna enjoy making this phone personal.

    For all the "pic or it didn't happen" people.

    That thing is like 4 times the size of my Pre-!!! Can't wait to check it out. Went to local Sprint store...not available until next week. Went to Radio Shack, they had them in box & had a dummy one. Unbelievably thin and comfortable in the hand. Don't know how it is in the pocket.

    Haha 4x is a stretch, but I stuck my Pre on top of my E4GT and this thing does dwarf it. It's like looking at a bazooka next to a pea shooter.
