UPDATED: Verizon stores (and on-line) already sold out of the Motorola DROID X on launch day?
Sometimes too much hype is a bad thing, or not having enough inventory. Case in point with the Motorola DROID X. We've heard reports from some PhoneArena readers of long-lines at stores starting at 7am this morning with a few dozen people in line. Also, by noon-time stores are sold out and may not get any more units until their next scheduled weekly delivery date. We wanted to find out for ourselves, so we called a number of stores from Palm Beach to Miami Florida and could not find one that had any DROID X units left in stock. Most stores told us they got between 40-50 phones (smaller stores and Kiosk location only about 12 phones) and were sold out within a few hours of opening. Many said the best thing to do is to simply order on-line, or you can come into the store, try out the demo, and order it there with it being drop-shipped to your home the next day. So were you able to get the Motorola DROID X today from your local store or where they already sold out? Let us know in Comment section below.

*UPDATE*
It now appears that the DROID X has sold out on-line too, with it now showing a shipping date of July 23rd.

Atleast the Droidx EARNED the 9.5 it got. Iphone 4g = Equipment Recall. A software reconfig will not fix the problem.

Anyway you want to hold it. Its on VZ, they wouldnt take a phone that didnt work. They better have plenty available online. I have been waiting for a rep to call me about ordering one. Im on vacation or I would have just gone to a store to buy one.

The stores are selling them first come first serve. You should have pre-ordered yours.

You can't expect to not sell out on day one, the true test of inventory is how fast will they be restocked. It seems like the big V did the right thing sending the quantities out that they did. That allowed them not to over stock one store, but keep enough in their own warehouses to meet their online, phone, and store orders today. Remember they are shipping all of these phones out today next day. So far I think VZW and Moto have done this right so far.

Actually: "Again, get your mommy. It's 'you' not 'your'." Haha. Impressive spell checking someone when you can't spell/type.

Gowireless I give u a -1 because you posted that before any iPhone comments were made, well except for jokes about holding it, lol, what are you being angry about? Phantom iPhone fanboys? On a related note, a vzw rep let me play with it the day before release(at a kiosk) and I gotta say the X is fuckin nice! Like it way better tHan the evo. Kinda hate the camra portion being so thick, but I like the phone.

does it come with task killer, memory booster and needs rebooting and the battery out a few times a day like my POS droid?

Sounds like bad apps. The Droid is solid. Master rest might help.

Jesus, there is dumbass people on this thread, Motorola is not a shit sandwich... whatever that means, take it from someone that actually works for Verizon the Droid is awesome, why .... because its never comes in with problems it never has issues, so keep your mouth shut unless something smart is going to come out, even though very unlikely.

8 Hours talk time, 220 hours stand by. However Droidx will have a extended battery coming soon.
