    Hopefully this isn't like the G2 where they got the black one in and the store reps had never even heard of a white variant which didn't come out for many months afterwards.

    If I were to go in to a store today and ask to buy the Turbo, would a representative be allowed to go in the back and sell me one?

    Any Tempered Glass screen protectors? I'm all over the Turbo if Verizon releases one instead of their normal cheapo plastic protectors only. I don't see any other manufacturer doing these so its up to Verizon.

    Why do you need one? I've never heard of anyone scratching their screen since the iPhone 3G days. They only seem to get in the way and cause excess glare.

    I believe sand will still scratch a screen. So if you have some dirt/grime in your pocket and some of that includes sand you'll get those microsratches.

    Scratches can occur even from dust or lint in your pocket. Gorilla glass or whatever today's technology offers is not fool proof. If I am going to spend ~$600 on a phone, I am damn sure going to take care of it.

    To each his own I suppose. I can't say I ever had a scratch dating back to my original DINC days. I guess the tempered glass could help in a fall but I don't see it completely preventing a shattered screen.

    I've scratched Gorilla Glass in an empty pocket with no noticeable debris inside. I couldnt tell you how my Note 2 scratched but it happens. I baby my phones beyond belief.

    Hey guys, if you want, post your questions and when I get out of work, I'll answer as much as I can. Sorry for the delay in my answers, I'm in and out of meetings, so I can't be on my device at already times.

    This is bad advice, screens can stick scratch and crack. Just me, I see it everyday.

    Based on Joe's photos, you've got Otterbox, Incipio, and Tech21 - at minimum - making accessories at launch. And there's a Case Mate case on Ebay already. So I'm going to speculate that this phone will have better aftermarket traction than last year's Droids.

    I've watched those youtube vids where people try and scratch their phone screens with keys, screw drivers, razors, etc and they come out unscathed. I've babied my phone and there is a pretty decent scratch that looks like someone wrote the word "on" on the screen. The Verizon branded screen protectors have generally been junk in my experience (sorry Joe), but if they have some tempered glass ones I'd probably get one of those.

    I have a question. How is the red one? Does it look good in person? And how is the feeling of it? As in, is it as grippy as the black one, or is it slippery? I am dying to know if you got to try it yet, I even made an account just for this haha.

    Yeah, I just mean I bet others will also make them, too, like Amzer.

    My three main questions for Joe would be: 1. How many styles/colors do they have 2. What is the price 3. When is it going to be released
