I just ordered the employee edition of the 8x last night. It's interesting that the gray and yellow is generating a lot of interest because I was really wanting the red or blue. I kept going back and forth and finally decided to get the employee edition because it came with the charging pillow. I figured I would put a case on it anyway and cover up the gray. (Don't care for gray!) I didn't even think about it being "limited edition" or anything like that. (BTW, I'm not an employee - my daughter is and I'm on her employee account.)
Honestabebread, do you think the charging pillow was defective or was it the phone? I will be scared to use the charging pillow now.

Welcome to the club. I had the HTC Trophy last year and thought I would jump back to WP and try out WP8. Plus a $99 gray and limelight yellow employee edition with a Nokia Fatboy charging pillow was too much to pass up. It wont replace my iPhone 5, but I'm really liking it. You are right the gray and limelight look great and in my opinion it does have a better overall feel over other 8Xs I've tried. For the first week of owning it I couldnt put it down, but the lack of apps is really heartbreaking. I was really hoping that Microsoft had addressed this issue since I owned the Trophy last year, but it feels exactly the same. Now that WP8 is using a different kernal we should start to see higher quality applications. The OS is gorgeous and a real joy to use and it is much more fluid and smooth than Android ever will be and that is the real reason I switched back to iOS earlier this year as I just couldnt take it anymore. Anyways enjoy your new phone.

The Verizon version of the 8X (employee edition and the regular black, blue, and red) all have wireless charging built in. From what I've read they are the only 8X's out that have wireless charging built in to the device. Hope this helps

Verizon swapped mine out at the store after spending 30 minutes trying the same stuff I did.
No problems with the new one so far (8 days later)...
