    They keyboard feels great on screen, but the sound it makes is the only thing that I need to adjust to. It's a lower pitched sound than most other devices..
    I sort of like the sound of the kb but wish you could control the volume, or make it a percentage of the overall volume. I tend to keep my volume between 15-20, sometimes higher, an the kb sound could get irritating, especially to pople around me.

    So, anybody handle the Trophy yet? any first impressions?
    I played with it for a while in the VZW store. Feels great. Perfect size.

    But it's almost certainly not an SLCD screen. The screen was a bit washed out.

    Not a deal breaker, but worth noting.

    I'll have mine at 10:30 AM tomorrow morning. :)

    Odd. The way the review reads, the person makes it sound like they got it at the store.

    Something I find a little ironic is that Bing shopping doesn't have the Verizon trophy, yet. :)

    My trophy just arrived! Its nice, fast, and very smooth. Breeze to setup. Screen is nice, but not too nice. When I switch to camera mode it's much more impressive. Not sure how to tell if is is SLCD?

    So I went to a Verizon store this morning. They have the phones in the store, but they are embargoed until the 2nd. No matter how much I *persuaded* them for it (including bribes...), they refused to sell it to me.

    The phone IS available for demo in the store, though, which is nice. The screen looks crisp. I even compared it with my OLED-screen Zune HD, and it looked just as good. Slacker Radio is preinstalled, and there is a Verizonish red background on the lock screen.

    I placed my order online last night for overnight delivery and received an order confirmation, but have yet to receive a tracking code. Should I be worried? Anyone else in the same boat?

    Yep, be worried. I ordered my on the phone yesterday with a guarantee of overnight delivery; I paid for the overnight myself.

    I go no notice of shipping and called this morning to find out that orders placed yesterday we held until official release on the website and will ship today. I did get credit on my account for the FedEx charge. It seems that there are two systems involved in the process; order entry and warehouse shipping. Phone orders were accepted but shipping was locked out until this morning.

    Leave it to Big Red to not give all the correct info to their various departments.:mad:

    Are they being shipped 'Signature Required' ? Just want to know if I need to be home or if he'll leave it on my doorstep.

    Yes, it said so on one of the order screens. Somebody mentioned something about calling Fedex and having it get picked up @ the warehouse. Not sure if it's possible, but am going to try as soon as I get my tracking information...

    My tracking info says, indirect signature.

    You can certainly call FedEx and have them stop the delivery so you can pickup. You will need to provide ID when you arrive. However, you must keep in mind that all hubs are not accessible to customers. That is, they don't have a customer service center for customer interaction. So you will need to call to confirm.

    When I hook it up to Zune it shows 12.49gb of free space. Is that the info you were looking for?
