It's only been three days since launch so to find it for 40% off is a complete steal. If you haven't bought your DROID yet and were planning on it, the best deal is at Wirefly.

Was the DROID Launch Successful?
There hasn't been too many reported lines for the DROID Launch and some people had pointed that as proof of an unsuccessful launch of the DROID. Obviously, that logic is flawed considering online orders are ignored and different areas have different demands. Overall, it looks like the launch of the DROID has been successful. TechCrunch reports that some Verizon outlets were already onto their next shipment of DROIDs after selling out their initial shipment, accessories are in high demand too. And it looks like everyone is using their DROIDs as well, Pandora CTO Tom Conrad tweeted:
According to TechCrunch, Pandora's download rate has tripled since the launch of DROID--pretty successful in our opinion. Did you guys see lines for the DROID?

And for Verizon, I think this is their first really successful BIG launch in the last 3 years. Never has the company made a big deal about a phone and actually had it in stock. The lack of lines was a worry, but I think many were just expecting sell outs like the Storm and the Voyager of the last few years and figured they'd come later. When word got out that there was actually stock, then people started coming in.
