    So close! Found a best buy willing to sell it, except it rung up as $10,000
    And you didn't buy it?

    Cheap ***

    Was in Staples here in CT this morning and they were setting up their display 'end cap' on one of the front aisles. Said they got 10 in and some cases and power adapters. The guy I spoke to wasn't sure if they'd sell them Sunday or Monday...I didn't press it as I already have a 3G & Wifi Verizon Xoom.

    I was in Best Buy later and there was no sign of them. They had Galaxy tablets in a beat up display and a big cardboard display in the in-store Verizon store announcing the Blackberry/RIM Playbook with specs on it, but nothing to hint of a Xoom including in the Verizon phone-selling-display area. Did not speak to anyone there.

    Lol. Not surprisingly, the guy offered to sell it for $10,000.

    Also, almost every person that told me they wouldn't sell it to me gave me their name and told me to ask for them on Sunday morning, and they would help me out.

    I wish I knew about the Amazon Prime free release date delivery a few days ago, I would have ordered it from them and saved the $40 in tax.

    Score ... just picked one up from Staples in Annapolis, MD. Best bet is to go in the stores. They are setting up the displays.

    At this point it isn't worth it, I'll just get it tomorrow morning at Costco for $10 cheaper.

    I got mine on Friday. Staples in Granite bay,CA. Called them guy said hold on, came back on the phone in 5 minutes and said yes we can sell it, use code word "#$%&*". Won't say guys name but I am loving it.
    Yes there are hardly any apps for it but I can wait and I really like the fact that the xoom will get all the updates first like the Nexus S.

    My local Bestbuy had them in stock understood the difference between the Verizon 3G model and that Wifi only model, but wouldn't sell, giving me a line about possible severe fines. I didn't push it, if I decide to get one I'll just go back tomorrow.
