Anybody in the U.S pick one up yet?
tried a few tmobile shops,corporate store and they all are saying no earlier then the 15th,and my local walmart said that you need to be on a family tmobile plan only or something to buy the sensation which made no sense,and they didnt even have any in stock yet.im just wondering if anybody has picked one up in the past few days and wanted their first impressions..i cant wait till wednesday i need to make it my duty to pick it up lol

I got mine from Walmart Wednesday. If you call around to enough of them you will find one that has them and are willing to sell it. I love it. As with every other phone I've bought on launch day or before (G2X, G2, Vibrant, G1, HD2, MT4G, and others) I am very particular about taking care of my phones so I can resale them for the next one and they never have cases available. But as for the phone, I love it. I was running Sense 3.0 on my MyTouch 4G so I am somewhat used to it, but it is smooth and fast. Only a couple of times when I am really pushing the phone will I notice any lag but it is a big improvement over anything else. Battery life has been great. Yesterday I took it to work and was online, facebook, twitter, used the fm radio, watched some youtube, checked e-mail often, made some phone calls, and about 300 texts and when I plugged it in over 11 hours later I was still over 40% battery. It is a great phone for sure.

Picked one up today, i had to go to a couple walmarts. The ones I did go to were sold out. Third one was a hit, although as I was buying mine, someone else was asking about the Sensation, when he found out mine was the last one, he said "Well you know, you're not supposed to be selling those til tomorrow.. " What a ******!

it is a bit puzzling though that the quadrant scores aren't higher but I'm chucking up to the test not being optimized for qhd display...
Sensation did do well on that one test that just test the cpu... forgot the name.
anyway, in the real world user experience I don't think it will matter what the benchmark scores are.
it's dual core, it should perform fine.
can't wait til mine arrives in next couple days.

I got three today. If I wanted to sell one is that ok or do I have to use it. I got them under a new two year contract. I upgraded all my lines but my wife doesn't want a phone without a qwerty keyboard and loves her mytouch slide. I think once she uses it she well maybe like it.
