Can't say it's surprising (or necessarily a bad thing), but we're getting reports a plenty via e-mail in in our Droid X forums that Verizon stores are selling out of their Day 1 stock for the Droid X. Above is the coupon that EvanGMan (on Twitter, natch) received in lieu of an actual phone. Hang in there, folks, we're sure Verizon will get a fresh batch in soonest.
Update: And just as we figured, stores have mostly sold out, and Verizon's website now has the badge the Droid Incredible hopefuls have come to know all too well -- the Droid X is now labeled as "Will be shipped by 7/23." (Note that it says "by" and not "on," m'kay?) Hopefully we won't see that date march steadily backward like we have the on the DInc.
Here's the official line from Verizon:
"This has been a very good day one for Droid X sales. Customers were in line at midnight in some markets, in other places there were lines when the stores opened and in other stores there has been a steady stream of customers. We have been successful at keeping up with early demand but at present inventory in some parts of the country inventory is either low or out. (It truly varies around the country.) Since we have weekly shipments planned, customers can still order phones and can expect them to be shipped on or before July 23. This link shows you some of the excitement from midnight in Columbia, MD."
Hang in there, everybody.
